Managing a Position User Guide

Introduction

The following steps will help you navigate the process of managing a search in Interfolio Faculty Search (FS), which includes:

  • Assigning/changing statuses
  • Requesting letters of recommendation on behalf of an applicant
  • Editing an existing position
  • Closing a position

Following this user guide will also help you manage a position that is in compliance with new UW standards.

Preparation Steps

As with the Create a Position guide, this guide is intentionally minimal so users—especially first time users—have a concise reference that covers the basics of managing a search. Interfolio, however, has a wide variety of additional functionality to support or enhance the search process including information on how to leverage analytics/report features. Links to learn more about additional FS features are included throughout this guide.

The full menu of FS guides is available at Help for Interfolio Faculty Search or by clicking  your name in the top right corner of the FS window and selecting Product Help. Be aware, however, that Interfolio’s FS guides will not have UW-specific recruitment requirements and may not reflect institutional settings UW has put in place for UW users.

Understanding the Evaluator View

It may be useful to familiarize yourself with how the search committee views and assigns ratings to applicant materials. Having a basic understanding of the evaluation process will help Administrators support the success of the search committee (Evaluators).  Please review Evaluator’s Guide to Faculty Search for more information on the applicant experience.
