    It’s not Prague, Oklahoma, or Prague, Nebraska, or even New Prague, Minnesota, or Praha, Texas — it’s the real deal in the heart of Europe! ;)

    I would love to have this job. Alas, most of my blogging experience is on Facebook and the local newspapers. You could pay me in Pilsner Urquel!

    If this is a serious inquiry, then allow me to introduce myself.

    My name is Lauren and I currently live in the heart of western Virginia. I have had work writing easy-to-understand, descriptive instructions for the use of electronic devices from laptops to Blackberry’s that were loaned to various employees when I worked for the US Government a little while ago.

    Electronics and the way they are evolving fascinates me and has so since I could remember, and my friends keep telling me to stop talking whenever I find something new that’s been invented or is in the process of being produced – for example: flexible AMOLED screens.. holy cow! And I’ve been a huge supporter of Avast since I dropped Norton about a billion years ago when it was eating my computer. I think I’ve converted about ten people over to the orange side.

    Please let me know if you are interested, or if there is somewhere else I should “apply”. I look forward to hearing from you.

    Best Regards,

    Lauren

    We have to move to Prague to blog? REALLY?! Do the electrons flow faster in Prague than they do in the U.S.? I’ll gladly take this job as long as I can stay here, at home, in the U.S.

    Would you be interested in a native English speaker living in Brno? Commuting to Prague wouldn’t be out of the question for me.

    Hi. I am a formerly certified IT project manager, formerly-formerly a military veteran, specialized in avionic systems, but now I study and write reports on the subject of investment analysis, commonly rewarded “editor’s pick” for the articles published. Relocation is not a problem, and don’t worry, y’all, I’m totally native.

    In other words, here is my CV: forget the zeros and hire the hero.

    This would be a dream job, but won’t leave Brazil to live in Prague, hey how about this same position here in Brasil :) . I really like the avast software and encourage everyone to use it.

    Also want to note that in your update pop-up you can post news and job offers and even adds and make a killing $$$$, lots of money, imagine the tens of millions of users you have clicking on jobs, news and adds, will beat Google nad Mcrosoft.

However, alas I live in the UK and have no desire to move to Prague (visit yes, but move there seems so extreme in this modern cyber space age)

    As a couple people have made comments as to why, in the modern world, the PR writer would need to be located at our HQ in Prague, I’ll offer the following explanation:

    Communication. If you want to know what AVAST employees are doing, you need to be able to walk around the offices and talk with them… ask them how things are going, what they’re working on, etc. Personal rapport is essential for internal communications. We have close to 30 nationalities working at AVAST, on many different types of projects. A person cannot experience that from halfway around the world, no matter how fast his or her internet connection.

    Hi there or as they say in Prague Ahoj!

    Avast is my loyal friend for year on my little but brave, hard working PC. It would be a pleasure to write for Avast. I can, speak and even spell in Polish, Dutch, English even my German is not too bad. However German, I always have it checked by my buddy. I am a geek so I know quite a bit about bits and bytes. Still I am not an IT Student but university is only one place where you can learn about it and accumulate knowledge. I know many coders who never have place their foot into any University and still they are on top of those who have that ohh so shiny IT-diploma. But just because they got it, doesn’t mean they can put in practice in the real world. Prague is awesome city, girls always want to go to Paryska street. If I get this job, I can afford to take them there, lol. Let me know if I am taken into consideration by your Avast team. I think that Avast is very clever software, that does need more promotion, all over the world. And because I enjoyed it myself for so many years, it makes writing about it so much easier, than selling your soul by writing good reviews about a crappy piece of software or worse medication lol . Your sincerely Martin

    I love how most of the people posting on here aren’t native speakers and the native speakers that did post have terrible grammar; it’s quite funny.

    I am a web developer myself, but have no experience writing blogs, nor am I interested in moving to Prague. Good luck with the recruitment ad.

    Nah, this blog is good for weeding out the people you wouldn’t want to hire anyways; if they can’t read a simple recruitment ad, they have no business writing blogs professionally.

  44. February 1st, 2013 at 18:20 | #44

    You fools. This says they wont respond to posts on here about the job. -__- Probably NOT a good idea to post phone numbers or emails on a blog where you wont be responded to.
