1. When did your journey with Chegg start ? Narrate a few highlights.

My journey with Chegg began in January 2018 for the subject Accounting on our Q&A Board. Eventually, I registered myself and started working for Textbook solutions.Over the past eight months, I have solved more than 850 questions on Q&A board and have also contributed more than 350 answers in TBS.A Chartered Accountant by profession, I am not the regular 9 to 5 CA. I feel blessed that my passion for my subject helps me serve Chegg with full-time services and dedication to the Q&A Board. I am also a practising Chartered accountancy as a freelancer in partnership with few of my close friends.My thirst for knowledge is insatiable. I am also pursuing a diploma in International Financial Reporting.  I dedicate my excellence in the subject to Chegg.

2. How was your experience at the meet in PUNE ?

My experience at the meet was two-fold. I had a lot of fun meeting my fellow Cheggers and Coordinators, at the same time I had informative and insightful conversations with people. The question and answer sessions were also of immense help to me, as I learned some Do’s and Don’ts I was not aware of, before the meet.

3. If given a chance to become a full-time employee, would you like to join in? If Yes, in which profile ?

It would be a matter of pride and honor for me to join as a full-time employee, probably as an operational manager or as a reviewer after gaining adequate experience.

4. How Chegg has helped you in your life ?
Working with Chegg has been an enriching and life-changing experience for me. It has helped me to enjoy my subjects and teach others at the same time! Moreover, the monetary benefit is commensurate to the efforts, which is difficult to find in any other organization. It helps me thoroughly enjoy what I do and doesn’t make work seems like work but play!

5. What is your best Chegg memory?

My best Chegg moment was when my first answer got a comment “Thank you so much!” from the student. I believe students do not comment unless they really feel the gratitude. That comment made me happy and super-motivated.

6. What is your primary motive while answering a question?

I try to answer in a way that helps me in learning and grasping new concepts and proves useful to the student as well. I make sure that the answer is correct and well-explained so that the knowledge of the student is enhanced. Further, answering questions involves extensive study which makes me grow as a professional and as an added benefit, helps me financially.

7. How do you make sure that you provide quality answers ?

To ensure that I provide quality answers, I always prefer to give well-explained answers with step-by-step solutions. I make sure not to miss any formula and/or definition required for a better understanding of the answer by the student Further, I only answer questions for which I am certain that my knowledge is at par and correct.

8. What are the questions you seek to answer ?

I choose questions from my area of expertise. My primary motive is to give an “expert” answer in every sense of the word, i.e. specialized knowledge. Thus, I am very careful about not choosing questions for which I might provide a sub-standard answer.
