How did you come to Chegg?
One fine day, as I was walking down the busy streets of Vizag, my eyes fell on this name board hanging outside Chegg office. It raised curiosity in me and I walked in to enquire. I found it very interesting.At that time I was pursuing my M. Phil, so I decided to wait till I would finish it. In 2010, I came back to Chegg and joined as an EA.
Do you work anywhere else apart from Chegg?
Yes, I do. I am a full-time Math faculty in a college and teach graduate level students.
How did the role of an EA help in your professional growth?
The questions posted on Chegg board are challenging. Until and unless we have in-depth knowledge on the subject, we won’t be able to answer the questions.Chegg allows me to assess my knowledge in order to understand where I stand. It encourages me to study more and attempt many challenging questions. The questions are application-oriented and are very interesting. Eventually, working with Chegg has helped me grow in my subject. I used to refer to Mathematicians like Green Burg and B.V. Ramana in order to carry out deeper research on the concepts and answer the questions. I also learned how to use software like MATLAB, Mathcad and thus improved my computer skills.Chegg helped me to be a cut above the rest with reference to subject knowledge among my colleagues.
