Overseas Placement Service for Educators Header

History of our Services

The University of Northern Iowa (UNI) has been a leader in the field of international recruitment for nearly four decades. Our services revolve around the UNI Overseas Recruiting Fair, held annually in February. Each year, over 120 international schools from over 70 countries attend the UNI Fair in search of the finest teachers and administrators.

UNI is home to the oldest international recruitment event in the world. The event began in 1976 after the UNI Career Services staff and several school headmasters recognized the need for more efficient and cost-effective recruitment techniques. It became readily apparent that UNI was meeting a need for school recruiters and interested educators all over the globe. In addition to inventing the international recruitment fair, UNI developed fact sheets, credential files, vacancy listings, referral services and computerized data unique to the international market.

Since 1976, nearly 26,000 educators have utilized our services at UNI. We invite you to visit the Candidate & Recruiter Comments section of our web site to view constituent comments and opinions.

As a non-profit, University-based service, UNI is committed to providing quality service to schools and educators worldwide. We encourage you to contact us with any questions you may have regarding our services at overseas.placement@uni.edu.
