Sorry about that, got a little mixed up. What I meant was closer to: if the sentence is simple and there is only one verb to worry about modifying, the placement is flexible. When the sentence contains more than one verb, then placement becomes more important. And, of course, it can still affect the meaning of the sentence.
>I'm actually not sure how an adverb can modify a whole sentence, can you give an example?
"Therefore, he ran across the road." Here, "therefore" does not modify "ran" directly, but rather the whole sentence.
>This sentence is grammatically incorrect. Both of your intended meanings can be expressed without changing the order:
I might be misunderstanding you, but I did mean for it to be incorrect in order to prove a point. Also, if I'm not mistaken, setting "being recruited" apart from the sentence like that changes it into a participle phrase, which then modifies the sentence as a whole.
