Seeking Ambitious Young Professional for Unique Remote Internship

Are you a college student or recent graduate looking to learn about one of the fastest growing career paths?

Are you passionate about working on projects where your effort drives results and makes an impact?

Then keep reading...

I am looking for an excited and ambitious self-starter seeking a way to break into PR.

With 10 years of experience, I will teach you about public relations and marketing communications and work with you so that you start utilizing what you learn immediately. Through this remote internship, you will have the chance to learn and actually engage in public relations activities to support client projects and interact with media, virtually from day one.

Our projects are focused on PR solutions for Greek companies, brands and businesses that may not otherwise be able to afford public relations support from more expensive alternatives. The goal is that our small steps will help grow their reach and propel them towards economic growth.

For you? An opportunity to gain hands-on PR experience.

For me? A chance to put my experience to work to help a young professional join the field AND to help a Greek company/brand/business succeed.

To be considered, please send a resume and letter of interest to effie {dot} delimarkos {at} gmail {dot} com.

Given the client pool, please make sure to note if you demonstrate an understanding of Greek culture and/or language. Please note that this is NOT a requirement.

I look forward to hearing from you!

Please Build a Wall Around Those Proposing Idea

Jokes are often used to lighten a tough situation, but this is a little ridiculous.

It turns out the Greek government is proposing that a wall be built on the Greek-Turkish border to curb the waves of illegal immigration that are adding to the country's problems.

That might be a solution if a large percentage of the country's border was made up of this area. However, one look at a map shows that the most exposed and vulnerable Greek border is made up of the miles and miles of island coastline.

I propose the following:

1) Immediately demote policymakers who proposed this concept as a good idea, give them a map and tell them to spend the extra time studying

2) Use the money to improve the infrastructure so that a process can deal with the problem, not put a brick band-aid on it.

Christianity Under Attack During Holy Days

The year is only two days old and yet two Christian communities’ hopes for a compassionate new year were devastated by hatred during what should be the most peaceful time of the year.

Unfortunately, neither incident is surprising for those affected by them; they have been living in the shadow of religious fear for quite some time. What is surprising is that governments and the larger global community have done little to protect them and that most major media outlets reported the problem only when hate turned to bloodshed.

As thousands crowded Times Square, the proclaimed cross-roads of the world, on New Year’s Eve to celebrate a new beginning; thousands more at the world’s major religious cross-roads wondered if this would be yet another year where their dignity and freedom would take a back-seat to geopolitics. Despite the numerous assaults they endure, they tried to unite to pray.

What were they praying for?

Praying for tolerance? So that they could feel safe to turn their heads to their God amid neighbors who bow their heads to Allah.

Praying for protection? So that their plight could be addressed by world leaders who claim concern about human rights.

Praying for attention? So that they no longer suffer in silence.

It may be out of our hands to help teach tolerance to those that resist it, although we should try.

It may seem difficult to sway political leaders, whose concerns seem to change with the election cycle. Again, we should try.

But with every post, article, comment or tweet, we CAN help shed light on what our Christian brothers and sisters are going through. Through information, some may find tolerance; through support, political pressure.

I hope you’ll join me; their plight is important and deserves to be told.
