Help Greece and HireAGreek.com
Greece is trapped in historically awful economic conditions. There have been a lot of initiatives to try to help the country and its people, who are suffering because of firings, tax hikes and a continuously deteriorating quality of life. While sending money to your relatives, opening accounts to collect funds in order to cover a tiny hole of the Greek debt, or bringing two or three friends over to America may be a temporary solution, something more drastic is necessary.
Something that will be sustainable and won’t make the Greek people feel like charity cases.
What Greece needs is jobs, and this is why HireAGreek.com was born as a unique initiative that harnesses the power of the Internet and new technologies to give people in the country an opportunity to seek and obtain jobs from all across the world.
HireAGreek.com was founded and is managed by GreekReporter.com, the largest international Greek news site and news agency. Operating since March 2012, HireAGreek.com is an important tool that connects employers from all around the world with jobseekers in Greece. This online tool allows job seekers to post their resumes while hiring companies can browse through in search of potential employees. We believe that there are many successful Greek businessmen throughout the world who can help by hiring people in Greece to work for their company remotely. Greek people are highly talented, and although public opinion lately has been against them, we know that given the right work conditions Greeks produce great results, a trait that has helped Diaspora Greeks prosper.
In less than a year, there are 25,000+ registered users, and more than half a million people have visited the site. Over 500 jobs have been posted, with Greeks successfully gaining employment through HireAGreek.com. The unique initiative has also been praised by almost every news media outlet in Greece, as well as major international publications such as Der Spiegel, El Mundo, and Sky Italia who called it a great innovative idea that can help countries who face big unemployment rates.
There are hundreds of thousands of Diaspora Greeks around the world that are successful businessmen and can help the people of Greece, by hiring them to work for their company remotely. And HireAGreek.com wants to achieve just that!
How you can help: If you are a business owner please consider posting open job positions on HireAGreek.com, or ask your HR department to do so.
