Super Bowl Appearance: Jan. 31, 1999
Well before LinkedIn, Monster.com was the place to search for new jobs.
This powerful ad that aired during Super Bowl XXXIII helped many people realize their current job was a far cry from their childhood dreams.
With just the right combination of humor, boldness and inspiration, Ad Age named "Kids" their commercial of the year.
"Before the Super Bowl, Monster.com's traffic was running at about 1.5 unique visitors per month," Ad Age reported in 2000. "For the remainder of 1999, it averaged 2.5 million visitors per month."
Though competition in the job search field has increased greatly over the past two decades, Monster.com is still around today.
