Voice of an EA- Dinesh Kumar
Q. HOW DID YOU COME TO KNOW ABOUT CHEGG?
I was introduced to Chegg by my best friend Abhiram. I am greatly indebted to him. He motivated me to apply for a job at Chegg and explained that my nature of work would be to teach international students online and help them solve subject-related problems. I cleared the test and I started my journey as an expert answerer on the Chegg Question and Answer Board.
Q. SHED SOME LIGHT ON YOUR EXPERIENCE WITH THE CHEGG Q&A BOARD?
I receive a wide variety of questions – theory-based questions, problem-based questions, MCQs, fill in the blanks etc. I wouldn’t let go any question unanswered unless it is beyond the scope of my subject knowledge. I ensure that my answer is helpful for the students’ learning.Concerning the Chegg Q&A Dashboard, Chegg offers a very user-friendly environment to answer the question. The expert management team is just a call away and are very generous in clearing all my doubts.
Q. WHAT IS YOU DAILY ROUTINE?
Simple – “EAT-CHEGG-REPEAT” Working from home has the benefit of savouring home-made food. I enjoy all the lovely dishes prepared at home and then continue with my answering on the Chegg Q&A Board. My friends do covet my lifestyle and I truly feel blessed.
Q. WHAT DO YOU LIKE ABOUT CHEGG?
Chegg is a haven for Subject Enthusiasts like me and this is the right place where I should be. The best part is that Chegg gives an opportunity to freshers and does not ask for work experience. Decent subject knowledge and good writing skills are much needed to qualify the subject test in Chegg. This is my first job and I am so thankful to Chegg for this fantastic opportunity.At Chegg, I can cater to international students and this is something I take pride in.
Q. WHAT GOES THROUGH YOUR MIND WHEN YOU WRITE ANSWERS FOR THE STUDENTS?
Answering questions on the Chegg Q&A board are not like writing an exam or a scholarly paper but is done with a purpose of teaching.Be it a tough or a silly question, I deal with the same diligence. A question might be a pebble for a tutor, but a mountain for a student. For every question, I give all the necessary information.I answer a question for the benefit of the student than just for my monetary benefit. The best way to answer the question for a student is to think like a student. Understand the student confusion points and add notes to address them.
Q. TELL ME SOMETHING ABOUT YOUR PERSONAL LIFE.
My personal life was never better before I joined Chegg. I used to depend on others for financial support almost for everything. After reaching many milestones in education, it is mere stupidity to depend on others to buy things, hang out with friends, go on vacations and celebrate birthday parties. Thanks to Chegg. my social and personal life has got a lot better.My post-graduation project equipment cost me around 1 lakh rupees, without Chegg I could not ever have initiated my project. I also gifted myself an expensive smartphone – ‘One Plus 6’.
Q. HAVE YOU EVER INTRODUCED ANYONE TO CHEGG?
Countless, I had helped many of my unemployed graduate friends by referring them to Chegg. I introduce Chegg only to those who are masters in their subject and not to those who are just casual about Chegg.
Q. HAVE YOU EVER FELT BORED OF ANSWERING?
Never! it was more about helping students than earnings. I always go the extra mile for the benefit of the students.
Q. IF YOU ARE GIVEN AN OPPORTUNITY TO WORK FULLTIME WITH US, WOULD YOU AVAIL?
I would be glad to work with Chegg fulltime, but I am willing to do PhD in my core area of expertise. I would personally recommend my friends to join Chegg – full-time. I wish I could grab this opportunity.
