Last week, CooperKatz had the opportunity to participate in the Annual Job Fair co-organized by the Howard University Johnson School of Communications and The Council of Public Relations Firms.  While we’ve always found these types of networking events to be fertile ground for the exchange of resumes, business cards and conversations withcandidates ‘putting on their best,’ they’ve also provided us valuable, real-time insight on what’s actually happening out there relative to young people on the job market – both now and into the near future.

Training Pets and Saving Lives

According to a survey conducted by Petfinder.com, the largest online database of adoptable pets, approximately 84 percent of animal shelters and rescue groups see family pets returned to them because of behavioral issues that could have been resolved with the proper training and resources. Sadly, these adoptable pets almost always have a harder time finding forever homes because their behavior problems were left untreated.  In celebration of National Train Your Dog Month, Petfinder.com partnered with Andrea Arden from the Association of Pet Dog Trainers (APDT) to launch Train FurKeeps, a program designed to teach families easy training techniques and ultimately decrease the number of pets relinquished to shelters.

Thought Bubble is a space for members of the CooperKatz team to share whatever comes to mind - from news about our company and clients, to insights on the constant evolution of the marketing communications landscape.
