About APCO Worldwide

Public affairs and strategic communications put APCO Worldwide on the map. The company's specialized services include corporate, investor, employee communication, crisis management, litigation communication, and government relations. It serves governments, industry associations, nonprofit organizations, and FORTUNE 500 companies; clients have included Johnson Controls, Dow Corning, Microsoft, The European Express Association, and The China Ocean Shipping Company (COSCO). The company has 30 offices in North America, Europe, and Africa and has been aggressively expanding into Asia. APCO, a majority woman-owned business, was established in 1984.

APCO has been expanding via acquisitions and branching out its office network in select markets. In early 2011, it obtained Eloqui Public Relations, based in London. Months earlier, the company acquired JiWin Public Relations, a PR firm catering to the Middle East. JiWin, formerly owned by Dubai Holding, is based in the United Arab Emirates, a region of the world APCO sees as a key focal point for connecting Asia, Africa, and Europe to the rest of the world.

In late 2007 APCO opened its first office in Bangkok; it owns a presence across China, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Singapore, and Vietnam. The company sees the Asian region as one of the world's most dynamic markets for providing investment and financial communication consulting and government relations services. By 2008 it had established four offices in Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou, and Hong Kong.

IT Support Associate Consultant, Washington, DC - June 12, 2015
A typical day of work consisted during the first task in the mornings in monitoring and checking the network infrastructure and the reports from all the servers, firewalls, routers via web based console the APCO's core IT environment. Shortly after that going through all the tickets during the day before and work on the ones that requires highest priority.

I have learned project and administration IT assignments with highly outstanding result. My co-workers are highly well prepared and the hardest part of the job was to keep up with the face paced environment which I was able to perform very well.

The most enjoyable part of the job was definitely the big holidays celebrations and happy hours every Thursdays. Working with nice people that cares what you do for them and receive accomplishments for your good work.
