The Evolution of the Job Hunt, Presented by JobsInSports.com

For most of the 19th and early 20th century, job hunting was virtually unheard of. Instead of seeking new careers, most people stayed with the line of work into which they were born, whether that was factory assembly or farming. After World War II, however, white-collar jobs in the U.S. boomed. For the first time, large numbers of people created paper résumés, which they presented in person or mailed to potential employers.

This state of affairs lasted until about the early 1980s, when use of the fax machine skyrocketed. While the speed of applying for jobs greatly picked up, most people still relied on newspaper want ads to discover job openings.

With the advent of the Internet in the 1990s, the employment landscape shifted again. Online job boards (including JobsInSports.com) provided job seekers with instant access to thousands of open positions, and email technology meant they could send their credentials in seconds. Today, online applications are the norm, and many job seekers boast online portfolios, personal websites, and even video résumés to accompany their applications.

About JobsInSports.com: In 1998, JobsInSports.com provided, for the first time, a single destination for individuals seeking careers in sports. Today, JobsInSports.com remains the leader in its field, thanks in part to its ongoing database of more than 7,000 jobs.
