This blog post is an interview conducted with our HR and Employer Branding Specialist – Magdalena Pliskowska who joined SolveQ last year in November. Magda wants to share her thoughts about specific aspects of HR in the IT industry and how she’s gained this knowledge and practice so far. We believe it will help some of you who consider a similar career path in the future. You have many years of experience as an HR Specialist in the IT industry. How did it all start? I’ve always dreamt about being involved in human resources management. My journey with that started in 2011 when I graduated from my master studies in Political Science and postgraduate studies in HRM. First, I participated in a few months of practice in Blue Media where I got to know the basics of work in the HR department. Very quickly I started my first serious job as a junior IT recruiter working for an international agency and after that changed it for internal HR working for well- known software house- Goyello for almost 2 years. My job was day-to-day contacting with potential IT candidates, participating in IT job fairs, employer branding activities, conducting soft part of interviews. Later I got pregnant twice and tried to combine work from home partially and take care of my children. I started cooperating with the gaming agency that was providing resources for AAA clients and game producers. It was for me a new lesson where I could get to know some technical knowledge about creating games. Mostly looking for C++/Unreal Engine, C#/Unity Developers, and Artists. I touched also cooperation with AR/VR industry. After almost 2,5 years working there, I decided to return to a full-time job and started a short journey with a British agency where I was responsible for sourcing and delivering resources for international clients. Meanwhile I had an opportunity to be RPO Talent Acquisition Specialist for Spartez for a few months where I was responsible for recruiting Java Developers. I missed a lot working within a team of IT guys and sent my application to SolveQ. And it was an excellent choice. I have an opportunity to work within all aspects of HR like recruiting, improving HR processes, increasing engagement, closing cooperation with executives.
