February 18, 2000 - Hong Kong - JobsDB.com, Asia-Pacific's leading interactive recruitment network launched an outdoor signage of record-breaking size today, prominently displaying the URL-JobsDB.com-on the net of the City Golf Club driving range in Kowloon. Approximately 545 feet long (or 165 meters), this massive signage is the world's largest outdoor signage.
To mark this momentous occasion, JobsDB.com held a presentation and ribbon-cutting ceremony, which was attended by its clients, business partners and celebrity guests.
