Join us for a conversation this week with Boston College, among the earliest adopters of ByCommittee Faculty Search, about their experience using the platform for their faculty recruitment work. There is no cost to attend. Watch the recording here!
The new “Close Position” option in ByCommittee Faculty Search gives you a button to formally conclude the search process for a particular position and record some data about who you selected (if anyone). Then you can pull reports on searches based on that data.
We heard you again! Based on a wide range of feedback from our campus partners, we’re happy to release the new annotations feature in both ByCommittee Faculty Search and ByCommittee Promotion & Tenure. Now you can make notes to yourself on candidate materials as you read. Along the way, we’ve made some improvements to the document […]

We see thousands of documents from […]

Maybe more steps than you first realized. Prior to today, a […]
Before the New Year, we published Part I of this series, an effort to make Interfolio’s role in the job application process more transparent. That post explained how we track application deliveries and the steps we’re taking to prevent spam filters from causing delivery issues. If you represent an institution that has experienced spam issues […]
