Was the e-mail from a search committee member or human resources? I am only asking because on the same day they asked for my rec. letters via interfolio, but I never actually got contacted directly by anybody asking for a transcript, so I am not sure what to make of this. Did this happen to anybody else?

I also received an Interfolio rec request, but not a request for transcript.  Those who received an email request for both, can you provide more information?

I received an automated email signed by the search chair but from jobs@westfield.ma.edu It said that my letters had been requested and that I needed to upload my transcripts. The request from interfolio came a couple of hours later.  Check your spam box? And maybe upload your transcripts if you got the interfolio letters request but not the email just to be safe? A:  I would also contact the department.

  • I don't understand why they are hiring TWO professors in the same exact area, the same exact year. Did I miss something? This is the same exact description as the Open Rank position that they already interviewed for earlier this year. Any info? A:  This may be just rumor, but I heard that they have someone specific in mind for the assistant tt position.  I don't know about the other, tho.
  • I believe it was San Antonio that had the open rank position. Austin DID have a search in the "same exact area" earlier at the Associate level. I take their search at the Assitant level in the same area to mean that their Associate search failed.
