Editor’s Note: This post is by Paul Slezak, Cofounder and CEO of RecruitLoop – the World’s largest marketplace of expert Recruiters and Sourcers available on-demand.

Recruiters- they don’t just recruit employees, they also sow the seeds of company’s reputation. The reputation that is built on the brand image they create and the employees they recruit to contribute.

To create this brand image and employ the top-notch talent for their brand, they use different tools and mediums like Social media, Job boards, Emails, etc.

But all these tools have come into existence since the 1990s. What about the time before that? How did they manage to recruit without the modern recruitment tools? What were the tools and media they used to carry out the job duties?

Well, to get an answer to all these question, take a dive into the awesome infographic below created by our friends at IMS One World and learn how recruiters (along with the recruitment industry) have evolved since the 1940s and what the future could look like.
