The History of the Recruiter and Recruitment Agencies

Posted on 14 Sep, 2021

Throughout the history of job advertisements, CV writing and networking, the role of recruiters and recruitment agencies has evolved tremendously.

During the early 1900s, most jobs and career opportunities were published through newspapers and noticeboards. Most networking was done physically through the exchange of business cards and formal meetings.
