The evolution of job searching over the past 20 years
Job hunting has changed dramatically over the last two decades, predominantly due to the increased use of technology by both recruitment companies and their potential candidates.
In the 1990s, job seekers had to divide their time between visiting recruiters, searching in the windows of local businesses and scouring through newspapers for suitable vacancies.
Nowadays, the job hunt has become much more streamlined, with job vacancies searchable and accessible online to anyone with internet access at any time of the day. Social media has also had a major part to play in this new age of job searching, as people can easily network with firms and companies they would like to work for.
