NOTES:

From acknowledgement email: "The search committee will start screening applications in November, so please do not be concerned if you do not hear from us before then. We will probably begin with phone interviews in December, and we will contact applicants by email to schedule those interviews."

Anyone hear anything? 

+Contacting references of shortlisted candidates in January; interviews scheduled late January/early February. [posted 12/30]
  • References were sent in hardcopy as part of the application package, so the above update makes no logical sense. I wonder where this person gets his/her information, as it seems patently incorrect?
  • I took it to mean they would be contacting the references that were already supplied - i.e. phoning, emailing, etc.
  • I did, too, but since references already provided letters in hardcopy, it would seem that they're now asked to go over and above what is normally expected of references. Perhaps, the committee will contact them, but that seems unusual to me.
  • The information might come from somebody in HR who's not familiar with the academic hiring process. Contacting references is pretty standard in other fields.
  • Yes, contacting references. This process is standard for our searches. Because we typically don't interview candidates at MLA, it allows us to narrow the pool for the campus interview stage.
  • Was this position just posted again on the JIL?
  • 1/17: The new position appears to be different, calling for a specialty in linguistics: https://apply.interfolio.com/24310 - posted at Linguistics 2013-2014
  • Is the search committee contacting references in lieu of a preliminary interview?

NOTES:

  • Search Committee Chair, here. Obviously, the timing of this search is a bit strange: not many schools run TT searches that begin in late April. But, we had one of our Brit Lit profs announce her departure recently, so we have begun this search ASAP (as soon as we got through the various steps to receive official approval for the search). You will notice the ad says "review of applications will begin immediately and continue until the position is filled." I never quite knew what this sort of language meant when I was on the job market, but in this case we plan to move as quickly as possible with the search. We understand many of you are nearing the end of your semester--a particularly busy time for us all--but please do try to submit application materials as promptly as is feasible (the search will be using Interfolio's ByCommittee system, so you will need to wait for the JIL ad to appear, then apply through the Interfolio link). For our part, we will attempt to keep you updated on the search's progress via this space (I will post updates on the British Open 2014 page). Though it can be difficult to predict a search timeline, we hope to conduct Skype interviews during May, with campus interviews to follow. If you have any questions, feel free to post them here or to email me at dcolson@emporia.edu.
  • Interfolio link posted 4/25: https://apply.interfolio.com/24934
  • Official deadline is 5/21 (as noted above), but I strongly encourage all applicants to submit materials ASAP. The review process is well underway and the SC will be meeting next week to select candidates for Skype interviews. [posted 5/15]
  • Skype interviews scheduled for week of 5/26. Campus interview invites will follow as quickly as we can get the paperwork approved. Campus visits will take place in late June or early July.

NOTES:

  • Seriously, Pepperdine? Official transcripts only. So ridiculous, and Interfolio won't let you submit unofficial to their application. Writing to the contact to see what the deal is, will report.
  • ^^Thanks for checking on this. Note that the following is the actual Interfolio address where you're supposed to apply: http://apply.interfolio.com/23687
  • here's what they said: "certainly submit unofficial transcripts at this point, although your university requires official transcripts for hiring." don't know how you get around the requirement on interfolio for official trans, if anyone has thoughts on that, please post...
  • ^^Can't you just upload unofficial ones instead? It's not like Interfolio is checking on the contents of the documents you upload...
  • To the above, actually Interfolio only assigns the label "official transcripts" if you have your school(s) mail the transcripts to the interfolio offices (unless your school does electronic delivery, which none of mine do). Of course, you need to think quite a bit ahead to do this. Then interfolio uploads the files for you to submit for the "official transcript" request.
  • you would think so, but i keep getting this message: "Only Official Transcripts can fulfill Official Transcript requirements." and then it won't let the upload complete. anyone else have this problem?
  • If you're getting a different message from the school, I'd let Interfolio know about the problem: "Submit a help request via email at help@interfolio.com"
  • many schools will allow you to specially request an electronic official transcript that you can hen upload to interfolio or other application programs. So, check with your school about your options. You could be saving your sanity and pocketbook.
  • OK, here's the deal: Interfolio is aware of this issue but so far as I know they haven't changed the "official" requirement. And Interfolio does know the difference between a self-uploaded transcript and one that comes directly from a university, hence the blocking (as noted above). You can add the unofficial trans. under "additional documents" and submit that way.
  • Friendly advice: If Pepperdine is reading this wiki (which schools often do), they will be able to match your name from your emails to the comments you left here, which started by calling them "ridiculous." It's a good way to count yourself out of the running before you apply. You might want to moderate your tone in the future.
