Public relations specialist and PhD in political sciences, OPAP SA Greece

MSc in Media and Communications, 2015

Why did you choose LSE, and why did you choose your programme of study?

The Schools global reputation. It was always my dream.

Overall, how do you look back on your LSE experience?

It was the best year of my life so far. LSE is a passport that opens all doors around the world.

Please describe your career path to date:

The moment I graduated I was offered a PhD from the National and Kapodiateian University of Athens. After not so long I applied to the biggest company in Greece, Opap SA where I got the job basically because of having a degree from LSE.

Why did you choose your current job?

Because of the economic crisis in Greece only few companies manage to survive and pay salaries in time. Opap is the most profitable company in my country and being here is a very safe solution for me for the time being.

Tell us about your current job:

As a PR specialist I promote the products of the company which is mainly a lottery and lucky games company. I also organise the CSR campaigns and charity events as well as other events that are sponsored by us (ex the annual Marathon race).

What advice do you have for LSE students who are looking to enter a similar profession to you?

After LSE chase your dreams. It is the best passport to lead you to your dream career.
