Requesting, storing and sending letters of reference using Interfolio’s Dossier

Are you applying to medical school or preparing for the job market?

At the beginning of July, we hosted a free webinar with Q&A outlining the process and benefits of using Interfolio’s Dossier to manage your letters of recommendation. If you need to ensure your letters remain confidential and are error-free before sending them, we can help.

This webinar was fairly straightforward. We introduced the subscription tiers, product, the multiple features, a demo on “how to” request a letter and then demonstrated how to send a letter from your account.

Why Interfolio?

For users with active Dossier Deliver subscriptions, we now perform a quality check on all confidential letters of recommendation as soon as they enter your account. Literally, we have a team of humans that take a look at the document quality of your letter, and then notify you AND your letter writer of any issues.

The webinar covered:

  • Requesting a letter. You can request confidential and non-confidential letters using a free Dossier account. The product will also send reminders to your letter writer.
  • Performing a quality check on your letter. Once you upgrade to a paid Dossier Deliver account, Team Interfolio reviews your letters for errors such as:
    • We check for a signature.
    • We make sure there’s an official letterhead.
    • We ensure the file uploaded is in fact a letter.
    • We verify the letter bears both your name and the letter writer’s name.
    • We establish the letter is legible.
  • Sending a delivery. Once a letter is in your account, we show you how to send it.
