I got a job easily, but I'm not sure it's the kind you're looking for!

what a coincidence

to tell you the truth, i dont really mind if its in the City or elsewhere, i'm not really a fussy type of person

Job wise i'm the same as well , as long as its a decent job i'll do it.

How did you go about finding a Job in Greece, was it the Internet or did you go to Greece in Person and asked about ?

btw if you dont mind me asking what kind of job have you got ?

If you do not speak Greek, you may find it difficult to get a job there. Your best bet is in tourism. That is, try to get a job in a bar or hotel on an island. Use the time to learn the language and upgrade.

Alternatively, try to find a job via a company which has a head office in your country.

I agree with GDE--- job options are limited without some Greek. I didn't find Greek so hard to pick up for conversation, but at a business level? Plan on some classes!
Sent you a PM with the other stuff.

Ηere's some more information on the kind of Job i'm looking for.

I'm going to be in Athens next week .

I'm not looking for big career type job, i'm just looking for a casual labor job like working in Shops, Restaurants or any warehouse job that requires picking and packing or any unloading and loading.

I know some basic Greek , Currently learning more as well.

hope that sheds some light.

Thanks for your input, Lionheart. Appreciated ...

Late september should be fine for Greece. But do not go any later. Have a look at this article about the best time to travel to Greece.

Skiathos is a fine island. But because of the trees, as I recall, it gets alot of mosquitos. I hate mosquitos. Alot of Greek islands get mosquitos, but I remember Skiathos having more than a few.
