The earliest placement services date back to at least 1921. By 1972, two campus placement offices assisted students and alumni, the University Placement Service office and the Educational Placement Office. The placement office served many companies by mail and telephone contacts. The Educational Placement office was a very important part of the teacher preparation program at Purdue.
