VOICE OF AN EA- ARPIT KANSAL
At Chegg, I can work peacefully … without any peer pressure or boss pressure…There is no haunting of targets and deadlines. I am my own boss and I can customize my targets as I wish.
Q. How were you introduced to Chegg?
One day I read an online post related to Chegg, which aroused my curiosity. I also enquired my friends. On receiving a positive response from them, I registered for the position of advanced Mathematics expert and successfully cleared the test. Initially, I answered only 100 questions and apprehensively waited for the paycheck. When I received my first payment, I was thrilled. Then on, I changed gears and started spending all my spare time in answering questions on the Chegg Question and Answer board. Now, I say to myself from the bottom of my heart that joining Chegg is one of the best decisions of my life.
Q. What were you doing before joining Chegg, or even now, apart from answering on the Chegg Q&A Board?
I got my master’s degree in mathematics from Chennai Mathematical Institute, Chennai. At present, I am pursuing a PhD in Mathematics. Before joining Chegg, I was just doing my PhD. I used to answer questions on other online platforms as well.
Q. How is working at Chegg diﬀerent from working elsewhere?
Working at Chegg is very much diﬀerent from working elsewhere. For instance, I can work at peace without any peer pressure or boss pressure. There is no haunting of targets and deadlines. Here, I am my own boss and I can customize my targets as I wish. Along with my work, I can continue my studies as well. Answering on the Chegg Question & Answer Board complements my study as well.
Q. In what ways did Chegg help you in your overall growth?
All my life, I believed that we learn more by teaching others. Teaching has reciprocal benefits. I am so thankful to Chegg for providing a platform to teach students globally. The payment I receive for my work at Chegg is quite decent. With my limited exposure to online teaching platforms, I can say that Chegg is the best. With my earnings at Chegg, I bought expensive gifts for my mother. I also pay for my education.
Q. Any memorable moment or experience?
I have lots of memorable moments with Chegg. One of them happened just two months ago. I answered a question on the Chegg Q&A Board, but the student didn’t gain much out of it because his basics were not strong. So, we had a long discussion where I explained each and every step in the comment section. I remember pretty well that due to diﬀerent time zones our discussion lasted for two days. After the full discussion, the comment I received from him was “Thank you, I was trying to solve this question for months, but I failed. Nobody could explain the problem as you did”. I am sure this is the experience of most of the experts working at Chegg. Through Chegg, I am being able to share my knowledge worldwide. The beautiful comments of students obtained on my answer give me immense pleasure and motivation to work on Chegg.
Q. How was your overall experience with the Chegg Q&A board?
It’s been a wonderful journey with Chegg. It is like an incentive for me to work at Chegg. I don’t have any hesitation in accepting that I have learned a lot just by answering questions at Chegg. Thanks to the entire Chegg team for making it the best company to work for. I urge everyone whoever is reading this to try Chegg at least once in your life I promise you won’t leave it. I referred many of my friends to Chegg. Most of them are working actively on the Chegg Q&A board. None of the regretted.
Q. Did you enjoy the expert meet?
The experience of Chegg expert meeting was amazing. Through this meet, I was able to interact with all my fellow experts and with all the coordinators as well. I got the opportunity to listen to all the beautiful experiences of my fellow experts and I cleared all my doubts. The arrangements were perfect, and especially the food was great. I had great fun and I feel proud to be a part of it. Thanks to the entire Chegg team for arranging such a wonderful meet. Overall my experience at Chegg has been wonderful.
