Connect: Letters of Recommendation

The Salisbury Center for Career, Professional and Experiential Education partners with Interfolio, an online service to manage your letters of recommendation needed in your search for employment and/or admissions to graduate or professional school. A file may be started at any point during your academic career or after graduation. Once a recommendation file is established, you have the security of knowing that copies are easily accessible for employer or professional/graduate school use. The file eliminates the necessity, in future years, of locating people from whom you would like a recommendation.

Interfolio is a convenient and efficient resource to manage your credentials online. Interfolio charges $19 to set up a 1-year account and $6 to send out the typical application materials. You can pay online, using a credit card, or by check or money order. Students who need financial support for this service can contact the Director of the Salisbury Center for Career, Professional and Experiential Education.

Here are some of the benefits of this service:

  • Easy applications – Once you create an Interfolio account, you are in complete control of your credentials file. With access to Interfolio’s secure site, the process of storing documents and completing applications will be quicker and easier.
  • Flexibility – As an Interfolio credential file holder, you may store and manage both confidential and non-confidential letters.
