I believe that one should never be in a hurry while answering the questions and make sure to double-check the answers.

10. How was your experience at the Expert Meet Conducted in Delhi? What is your biggest takeaway from the Expert Meet?
Expert Meet is one of those things that I really love about Chegg. Chegg cares for its experts and treats them as their full-time employees. Recognition, warmth, acceptance and motivation is what you get to witness at the Expert Meets. It shows Chegg’s reverence to its experts. I love the concept. There’s so much to learn from fellow experts.
When I see experts solving 15-15000 of questions a year, it boosts my motivation level. I would love to break the record set and reach the benchmark laid by other experts. I am gearing up for that in the coming semester.
