A brief history of recruitment
The first known recruitment agency dates back to 1653, started by Henry Robinson. However, recruitment, as we see it today, emerged during World War II when there was a need to fill up the positions vacated by the soldiers who went to war. The vacancies were often printed out on pamphlets and stuck across the neighbourhood, or businesses used good old word-of-mouth to invite people for interviews. And it worked. So, as time went on, the recruitment method stuck. Of course, now it is way more defined and has a couple of additional steps to it, but the basics remain the same to this date.
