The American Philosophical Association is pleased to announce three new resources available to APA members.
The new Jobs for Philosophers
The American Philosophical Association will launch the new Jobs for Philosophers on October 1, 2012. The new JFP will allow employers to electronically submit and pay for job ads, which will appear on the website immediately upon APA approval. These ads, which can be purchased individually or in packs of three, will be posted for 30, 60, or 90 days.
The new JFP will also provide many advantages for job candidates:
- Ads are searchable by keyword and can be filtered by rank, AOS/AOC, location, and duration.
- Candidates can save active job listings and return to them later.
- Users can sign up for email notifications when new jobs are posted.
- Job seekers can post a CV, and employers with active listings will be able to browse resumes and contact job seekers directly.
Complimentary Subscription to Interfolio ByCommittee for APA members
This fall, the American Philosophical Association has partnered with Interfolio to give APA members and JFP advertisers a one-year complimentary subscription to Interfolio ByCommittee, a secure online committee-based decision making service, for the current academic year.
APA members can use ByCommittee to help evaluate and select faculty candidates. Making time-intensive selection processes unnecessary, the service allows your search committees to collaborate online and recommend the most talented and diverse faculty and staff.
There is still time to take advantage of this offer for your 2012 hiring searches. Sign up for Interfolio ByCommittee now.
Free Interfolio Dossier membership for job candidates
Also through our partnership with Interfolio, APA members will receive a free Interfolio Dossier account. With Interfolio’s Dossier service you can store all of your credentials in an online portfolio. Nearly any document can be stored, including confidential letters of recommendation, CVs, writing samples, dissertation abstracts, teaching statements, and more.
With an Interfolio Dossier account, you can electronically transmit letters of application and CVs to hiring departments at no charge. You can send a complete dossier with confidential letters of recommendation and other materials for a fee of $6 per position (expedited options are available at an additional charge). And that fee is waived when you apply to a position managed through Interfolio ByCommittee.
Open your free Interfolio Dossier account now.
The APA is excited to offer these new tools for our members on both sides of the hiring process, and we look forward to a productive hiring season.
All the best,
Amy E. Ferrer
