Many years later with the growth and improvement of the internet as an accessible research tool, recruiters started to use online job-portals as a resource to access candidate's CVs.
Today "Pnet" and "Career Junction" are a popular resource used by South- African recruiters for exposure to thousands of CVs.
Throughout the history of recruitment one aspect has remained the same: it is always changing.
The attracting, screening and selection of candidates in whatever circumstance or period, using whichever tools available has always had the same purpose: placing a candidate in a vacancy and the environment in which this has taken place has been changing and evolving since 1940, and will continue to do so.
By the mid 90's, with the arrival of the world-wide web or internet, recruiters were treated to the use of online classifieds and job advertising as well as online databases.
"Recruitment is something which I have always classified as 'new' or 'modern.' It was only after researching the topic further, that I discovered the concept of recruitment to be rich in history, dating all the way back to the 1940's." says Kerryn Karssing senior consultant at the Recruitgroup.
It is believed by some that recruitment dates back to ancient Egypt, Greece and Rome through the way in which people wrote things down about themselves to give a potential employer, initiating the concept of a CV.
