Placement Files

The University of Idaho Career Center will officially store letters of recommendation for students/alumni who are either: 

• Applying for employment in K-12 and post-secondary education 
• Applying for admission to graduate/professional schools

Creating a file saves your letter writer from having to produce multiple letters for your applications.  It allows you to have letters of recommendation held and sent to numerous institutions and school districts.

School districts recommend that a letter of recommendation be no more than three years old.

EFFECTIVE August 22, 2005:  Placement files will be destroyed after 10 years of inactivity.
