How to: Request and Send Letters of Recommendation to an Interfolio-hosted Position
You can request letters of recommendation during the process of applying to an Interfolio-hosted position. The letters you request will be stored in your Dossier account. You can also attach letters that are already in your Dossier to your application. If the request is attached to a completed application, than the letter will be forwarded when it's received.
