I am currently a master's student in the process of applying for an internship, and the program requires that I submit two signed reference letters. Unlike typical graduate school applications, where recommenders send their letters directly to the institution to maintain confidentiality, this particular internship application asks that I, the applicant, upload the letters myself. This has led to some concern on my part, as I'm unsure whether my professors will be comfortable providing the letters in this manner. I tried to reach out to the organization providing the internship program but wasn't able to get any response.
Would it be possible to assure my professors by offering them the option to upload the letters themselves? I'm considering sharing my application portal password with them, so they can handle the submission if they wish to keep the content of the letters confidential. This way, they can maintain control over the process, and I can fulfill the application's requirements. Could this be an appropriate solution?
Thanks for the help!
