I'd like to suggest you ad an employment service to your online magazine. Currently there are dozens of very experienced pet professionals looking for jobs as a result of down sizing or cutbacks. The talent available is amazing! I'd like to organize this effort and put job seekers and pet companies looking for talent together.
