“Rutuja started her journey with Chegg as an Expert Answerer in Accountancy in May 2018 and has been actively solving on the Chegg Q&A Board. Over the past few months, she has maintained a CF score of 83%. She was so motivated to help students that she solved 16 questions in her first month.

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

I will be flattered to receive a full-time job opportunity from Chegg soon after completing my studies. Currently, I am enjoying working on the Chegg Q&A Board as a freelancer because I have the freedom of choice and time, which is critical for me at this stage in my career. I am also preparing for my Chartered Accountancy exams.

Q. How was your experience at the Meet in Pune?

My experience at the Pune Meet was fantastic. It was a lot of fun as I got to know and interact with some amazing people who are experts in their respective fields. It was also a unique opportunity to communicate with the Chegg Engagement Team directly. They gave me insights into Chegg’s functioning, its vision for the experts, and the opportunities that might be available for everyone in the near future. I loved that the Meet also had a dedicated session for understanding the experiences of experts, the issues that we face, and a possible resolution of these issues in the future.

Q. How is your experience in Chegg?

My experience with Chegg has been phenomenal so far. Chegg gives me the unique opportunity to earn money and enhance my knowledge from the comfort of my home while helping students globally. Helping the students learn is, as always, a great experience, and so is working with the Chegg team.
Chegg has helped me keep in touch with the academic knowledge that I obtained as part of my education. I enjoy the challenge of solving the questions on the Chegg Q&A board. It helps me prepare for my exams too. Earning a bit of spare income while doing what I love is an added benefit.

Q. What is your best Chegg memory?

The best moment for me is when someone rates my solutions positively. All positive ratings, be it from the students or the Chegg quality team, keep me motivated to provide detailed, high-quality solutions.

Q. What is your primary motive while solving questions?

My main motive while solving a question is to help students who are eager to expand their subject knowledge. At the same time, I enhance my knowledge, revise the difficult topics that I already know, and understand new concepts.

Q. How do you make sure that you provide quality solutions?

I understand that the quality of an solution is of the utmost importance as it determines the quality of education that the student receives. To that end, I make sure that all the solutions are neatly typed out with formulae and references wherever required. I also seek clarity on conceptual doubts by reading additional material from external sources. However, I refrain from solving questions that require a lot of external reading and research because it may compromise the quality, considering that there is a time limit to solve each question.

Q. What are the kind of questions that you seek to solve?

Usually, I seek to solve questions that I have the subject knowledge of. Another factor that I consider is whether the solution can be given within the time limit of 120 minutes without compromising its quality. In short, I try to solve questions that can be solved effectively and efficiently within the available time limit.
