The Evolution of Recruiting [Infographic]

In More Posts... — by Erin Engstrom

From the time that humans first began creating organizations, groups have been working on ways to be more effective at recruitment. In the 21st century, of course, most of an organization’s recruiting efforts take place online. Obviously, this hasn’t always been the case. In fact, the history of recruitment is almost as old as the history of civilization itself. For example, in ancient Egypt and China, workers were handpicked to complete massive undertakings for the Great Pyramids and Great Wall.

The evolution of recruiting is such that job recruitment as we know it today didn’t really start to take shape until after World War II. To help those returning home from the war, new businesses sprouted that worked with job-seekers to find new opportunities. In time, organizations also contracted recruiting companies to help them find the perfect applicants for open positions. With the rise of the internet, these efforts have moved online, creating the job recruitment landscape we see every day.
