SEJONG, SOUTH KOREA — April 30, 2020 — The KDI School of Public Policy and Management, an affiliated educational body of the Korea Development Institute, today announced the adoption of technology to improve its faculty hiring process and further expand its scholar recruitment internationally. With Faculty Search from Interfolio, creator of the leading Faculty Information System (FIS), KDI standardizes their processes for hiring tenure-track talent and improves the management of application materials and external letters of recommendations. Interfolio Faculty Search provides a centralized hub of candidate materials and robust ways to report on candidate applications. 

“We are proud to be the first Korean university to adopt Interfolio. Since our founding twenty years ago, we have set a high standard for our faculty and students, and we needed a leading solution to support our international faculty recruiting,” said June Kim, faculty recruitment officer of the Personnel Division. “We are pleased to join other top universities who use Interfolio’s Faculty Information System to attract and manage global talent.”
