    United States - Tests: 4 - Portfolio: 5

    To those whom may review this for work purposes, I have done a number of things in several areas with 9-14 years of experience and achievements to back up the work that I've done. I hold work experience in marketing, writing/journalism, accounting, video production, graphics/web design, office administration, and business management. **MARKETING CONSULTANT** I founded Initiated Marketing as an online marketing, public relations, and image consulting firm that has been outsourced by corporate marketing departments and publicists worldwide. Also the winner of the 2012 Business Excellence Award for Most Innovative Company in Marketing and Advertising. I changed fields to public relations and political strategy. The most notable success was as manager of the 2008 'Israel for Obama Campaign'. Afterward I became a strategic marketing consultant to celebrities for this award-winning online firm I founded. Over the years have had the privilege to work with companies and political organizations like Kidzui and the Tea Party Express. While working here I've also written several articles and press releases with Rolling Stone Brazil, Historically Black Colleges and Universities, Yisrael Today News and others. This includes interviews with several celebrities such as the stars of A&E reality TV show 'Flip This House', Julian Lennon, Mark Ballas, and more. "Yeshiyah achieved great results with a slim budget for a non-profit organization client of mine. He proved to be very pro-active and thought out of the box, coming up with creative solutions to their PR needs. The result was international media coverage of their recently released CD album with big-name artists working together to raise funds for the charity. I would highly recommend Yeshiyah and his team to others seeking PR work." -Dylan Robertson **CLERK & OFFICE ASSISTANT** I've worked in office environments on a number of jobs and for a variety of purposes before. - In Israel, I worked as a financial clerk for the Tel Arad National Park and held duties including collecting daily entrance fees, keeping financial records, filling out accounting records with the Manager. - I worked for Da'Real Distributions in Beth-Shemesh where my job included communicating with clients oversea & record companies in Israel. I also wrote up legal contracts & agreements, plus negotiated sales prices for CD amounts. **RESEARCH & JOURNALISM** I've researched, investigated and written detailed reports on archaeological subjects for a Yeshiva. I have a recommendation from Yehuda Govern, an Israeli archaeologist, for my work at Tel Arad- the Israeli National Park. I'm a journalist that has written news articles for the 'Yisrael Today News Team". I also wrote in 2006 with my father a chronological history book on Phoenicians & Black Indians entitled "The Amariel Family Oral History". I've also written articles for Rolling Stone Brazil, Yahoo News and several other online media platforms. In addition, I am responsible for the media related project Mag Nota, a one stop source in cyberspace's most notable topics. Easily considered the most collaborative social media news feed online with contributors that include Yahoo News, Reuters, CBS Sports, The Wall Street Journal, Vanity Fair España, Amy Cosper editor of Entrepreneur.com and formerly contributing partnerships with Mark Zuckerberg, Business Insider, MTV Hive, Ryan Seacrest, Blake Lively, Vogue Teen, E Entertainment, Huffington Post, Fox News, USA Today, PBS and others. https://web.archive.org/web/20120116114859/http://www.rollingstone.com.mx/noticias/julian-lennon-dona-una-cancion-para-los-ninos-de-japon/ **GRAPHIC ART & VIDEO PRODUCTION** I've been making graphically design images for people for 9 years, most of which have been combined with the construction of websites. I'm dedicated to creating high quality video productions for interesting clients and "turning their dreams into reality". And in 2002, I and Watchmen Productions (which is in association with Amariel Family Entertainment) put together a film entitled "Search for Zion". It was aired in July of 2003 in the Midwest on Can TV Chicago. By 2007, my skills advanced to blend live action with 3D animated video editing for a non profit organization in Florida. For my works in visual productions over the years I have professional recommendations (can provide them on request) from other graphic artists including "Michael Netzer", formerly of Marvel Comics and DC comics. **WEB DESIGN ** I've been web design for 9 years with the Tabernacle Congregation of Prayer organization and other less consistent clients. Since 2002 I've been interested in making dynamic websites using the various sound, animation & flash methods. Thank you for your time Sincerely, Yeshiyah Amariel http://www.articlesbase.com/authors/yisrael-today-news-team/30629.htm
