What is a Placement File?
A placement file is a collection of documents sent to prospective employers (typically, school districts) during a candidate's job application process. Contents usually include resume-type information provided by the candidate and reference letters.
New Placement Files
Area school districts no longer require, or even accept, university placement files, so our office will not be opening new placement files or reactivating inactive ones.
Active Placement Files
Current active placement files will continue to be maintained by our office. If there is no activity (requests for mailings to potential employers) for two or more years, the placement file will become inactive.
Inactive Placement Files
Inactive files are stored for a maximum of 15 years before being purged.
