Ri5 Profile: Kasia Rog

 

We'd like to thank Kasia Rog from ZipRecruiter for taking part in the latest Ri5 profile. Kasia came to the industry via an unique route, having started in politics in Poland, she's now the agency sales manager for ZipRecruiter

How did you first get into the industry?

It was pure luck. I was working on behalf of the Chancery House building management team, and I saw the huge potential of online recruitment. I’ve now been in the industry for 11 years, and I’m amazed by how much it continues to evolve. The AI matching technology and machine learning we’ve developed at ZipRecruiter is leading the industry into a new era of recruitment.

Would you do the same again?

Absolutely, you can never get bored of the recruitment industry. It’s especially exciting working at ZipRecruiter because of our focus on creating smart matching technology. Our AI matching technology analyzes millions of data points to learn how to engage the right candidates with the right jobs, and instead of waiting for candidates to search for jobs, we match qualified job seekers to the right opportunities.

What would you do if you didn’t do this?

Initially, my aspiration was to be a politician. I had a career in politics with some success while I was living in Poland.

What’s your favourite recruitment ad?

The Army ads are fantastic. I find them very inspiring.

What’s the best piece of advice you’ve received in your career?

Take a step back and look at the bigger picture.

And what piece of advice would you give somebody starting out in the sector?

Don't be afraid to ask questions. There are no silly questions; there can only be silly answers.   

You’re entertaining industry contacts. Where do you take them, and why?

I always like to try new places, and good food is always what I’m looking for. Holborn Dining Room and Hoxton never fail, but now I’m discovering amazing little restaurants around London Bridge, where the ZipRecruiter UK office is located.

What are you reading at the moment?

My eldest son recently introduced me to a new fantasy saga that takes you away to an ancient world full of magic, kingdoms, and fantastic creatures. It’s a great distraction from my everyday life and a great conversation topic if you want to keep up with a 13 year old.

And what are you listening to?

It varies. I don’t have a specific type. The most recent has been “Top 50 most played” on Amazon Music.

What’s your biggest achievement—career or otherwise?

Honestly, my biggest achievement is raising my 3 sons. It is not an easy job.

What is your ideal holiday?

Any active holiday is ideal. I’m not your beach-only holiday type because I can’t stay in one place for too long. If activities can be combined with good food, I am all over it.

 

Thanks Kasia. If you would like to nominate someone for an Ri5 Profile, or participate yourself, please contact the Ri5 Editorial team at editorial@ri5.co.uk
