UNI Recruiting Guidelines

Related: Fraudulent Job Postings

Thank you for your interest in recruiting at the University of Northern Iowa. Our 12,000 students will be interested in learning more about your organization and opportunities. The University of Northern Iowa (UNI) strives for open access and connections between students and employers. UNI reserves the rights to accept or deny any position or recruiting organization based upon internal criteria. Additionally, UNI may deny or remove access rights for organizations that do not meet the above standards or do not match the mission of Career Services, the Division of Student Affairs, or the University of Northern Iowa. In our effort to maintain the integrity of recruiting at the University of Northern Iowa, we have developed standards by which all recruitment and postings must adhere:

All job postings must include an email address, phone number, and location for Career Services to contact. Contact information for the posted position will be viewable by students. Additionally:

  • Email: When posting for an organization, the email should be tied to the organization
    (example: Purple Company must come from the standard company email such as smith@purplecompany.com)
  • Phone: Must be tied to a specific contact within the organization and not a generic 800 number
  • Physical Address: Must be present and verifiable; no PO Box addresses accepted

Absolutely no postings will be accepted if applicants must pay or purchase access for opportunities.

Local community members may post on the UNI Job Board for private in-home services (nanny, tutor, etc). They must complete this form and then be approved by UNI Career Services. UNI Career Services will post the position. The posting will be posted for no more than 30 days and must contain a valid email address and phone number. A current home address (or where the work with be taking place) is also required for internal review but will not be made available to the students unless otherwise noted. UNI Career Services reserves the right to accept or deny any position based upon internal criteria.

We welcome independent contract positions; however, this must be stated in the job description. Independent Contact positions are generally not eligible for internship/co-op credit through UNI Career Services.

The UNI Job Board and the Career Services social media feeds (LinkedIn, Twitter, etc) are designed to connect students to career readiness programming, internships and job opportunities. No advertising is allowed for products and services other than to draw interest to active job/internship posting(s).

The University of Northern Iowa is a member of the National Associate of Colleges and Employers. It is expected the common and adhered practices stated in the NACE Principals for Professional Practice are followed.
