Interfolio: A Tool to Help Grad Students Throughout the Job Search

3 Ways Interfolio Can Help

*Build Your Dossier: You don't need to wait until you're on the job market to begin collecting confidential letters and other professional documents. Getting a head start while you're still working towards your degree can save tons of stress and headaches when you actually go on the market years later.

*Establish a Professional Identity: With the Interfolio Portfolio, you can immediately begin collecting examples of your work, reflecting on work and classroom experiences, and demonstrating teaching skills. You can do this all through an easy-to-use, online service that can be as private or as public as you want it to be. It's a resource you can begin maintaining as a graduate student and continue updating throughout your whole career, even after you've left campus.

*Efficiently Manage the Job Search: Graduate students continue to represent the highest percentage of Interfolio's membership. Aspiring job applicants across most of the humanities (English, History, Political Science, etc...) take advantage of Interfolio's dossier service to manage all documents for their search. Here is an article recently posted in the Chronicle of Higher Education about Interfolio's services.
