Workshops and Mock Interviews In early autumn, the department offers a workshop on the academic job search for students who are currently on the job market or anticipate being on the market in a year's time. The workshop covers such issues as preparing a cover letter and dossier, interviewing and campus visits. In early February, students who will be interviewing at the College Art Association's annual meeting or other conferences can participate in mock interviews with members of the Art History department faculty. Please contact your faculty advisor to set up this mock interview.

*Interfolio The University of Chicago has contracted with Interfolio, Inc. to maintain dossiers, for students seeking jobs or fellowships. A confidential credentials file allows each of your recommenders to write one letter which is stored and may be used repeatedly for any period of time. You may also elect to keep copies of transcripts, teaching evaluations, or sample syllabi in your file. You can consult with your dissertation advisor for advice on preparing the dossier.
