The Boston College Career Center recommends using a credentials service like Interfolio, a web- and subscription-based file management company.

Also known as a "dossier," a credentials file helps you manage the application process by storing all of your application materials and sending them to graduate school programs or potential employers. Your portfolio can include letters of recommendation, curriculum vitae, writing samples, dissertation abstracts, teaching certifications, student evaluations, and more.

Here’s how to get started, whether you’re a student opening a new file or a faculty member writing a recommendation.
