Profiles in Telehealth: Gosia Cohen - Corporate Recruiter
Our corporate recruiter has found herself speaking to so many unique people as she drives to expand the Wheel team. Learn more about why she loves working for a mission-driven organization and why she's excited to bring top talent to Wheel!
What’s your role at Wheel?
I am a Corporate Recruiter at Wheel. In this role I’m responsible for attracting, qualifying, and walking talent through the different interviewing stages. We have open positions in almost all of our departments, so I am definitely very busy these days! It is amazing to see Wheel grow!
What’s your background? What did you do before working with Wheel?I have moved around quite a bit but still claim that I don’t like traveling! ;) I have been living in Austin for the last five years. Before Austin, I lived in Houston - it was just a brief 6-month stop before moving to Austin. I moved to Houston from Amsterdam, where I spent nearly 10 years. While in Amsterdam, I got my MA degree in English Language and Culture with a great focus on Gestures and Linguistics. I am originally from Poland and used to live in Gdansk near the Baltic Sea, which is the loveliest area! I also did a year of German courses in Bremen just after high school. I got to experience different cultures and languages, but Austin is by far my favorite place!
Why did you join the Wheel team?
I joined about 3 months ago and am absolutely loving it!
I was looking for a company with a true mission to help other people and a space with strong values where you and your work are respected and appreciated.
I get to speak with many candidates interested in Wheel daily. I get to tell them what we are all about, what we stand for, and what role they would play if they were to join us. No two calls are the same. I am so lucky because I get to know so many different people with various stories, backgrounds, and experiences. It all makes it fun and very dynamic!
What’s your recent Wheel Moment of Reward?
I had an extremely rewarding moment recently. At Wheel, we have weekly virtual happy hours on Fridays (yeah!), so I logged on to the meeting. When I saw all the new faces I had the pleasure of recruiting, I couldn’t contain my excitement! Seeing Wheel grow and scale makes me incredibly happy. I am currently working on expanding our engineering team, and we have 4 spots left (hint, hint: apply!). It’s so rewarding to work with a team that is building a platform that will make virtual consults more widespread!
What do you think the future of healthcare holds?
When I was approached by Wheel I did a lot of research to really understand what the company was working toward. I asked about a thousand questions in my interview and quickly came to the conclusion that it was the space for me! I was very honored I was offered the position. I am a true believer that one day that telehealth will be the primary way to receive healthcare. I can imagine the day when most consults will be taking place virtually. I look forward to watching Wheel expand and serve more companies, clinicians, and patients! I truly think the COVID-19 pandemic woke the world up from a long slumber to realize how important telehealth is for society. Luckily, Wheel is here to move the telemedicine sector forward and help make virtual care the norm.
Thanks, Gosia, for sharing your thoughts and being an essential member of the #WheelCareTeam!
