MARGY (Managing Academic Recommendations Gratis Yay), the free service for emailing confidential letters of recommendation developed by philosophers David Faraci (Georgetown) and Graham Leach-Krouse (Kansas State), previously reported on here, is entering its second phase of beta testing. The team is inviting hiring departments to participate in the testing, and inviting applicants to jobs at those departments to use MARGY when applying.
The first department to sign on to use the system is the Rotman Institute of Philosophy at Western University, which is soliciting applications for a post-doc position. Anyone applying for this position should use MARGY to apply.
People and departments need to use the service for it to get off the ground as a viable alternative to its non-free rivals.
If your department decides to use MARGY , let me know and I will add a link here to your advertisement.
