Voice of an EA – Mohan Dev

Q. How are you introduced to Chegg?

I’m Mohan Dev and I was introduced to Chegg by my friend, who has been working as an Expert Answerer. I was impressed when my friend said that Chegg is a haven for Subject Enthusiasts like me.

After joining, I realized what he said was absolutely true. I am very happy that I am an Expert Answerer for Chegg.

Q. What else do you do apart from being an EA?

I did my Ph.D in botany. I worked as a Bio Infomatic Analyzer for Polaris, based in Noida. Later, I moved to Vizag and opened a prenatal-molecular diagnostics Lab.

I also worked as a guest faculty at a University.

Q. How do you balance your personal and professional life?

The Chegg Q&A board is very comfortable to work on. I love working during nights. I try to answer as many questions as I can in the night. The Chegg team maintains a good rapport with me and the communication lines are always open. I get seven hours of sleep and I reach my lab at 1 PM. I sometimes answer questions even while traveling in the bus.

Q. How did Chegg help you in your overall growth?

I majored in genetics. When I started working on Bio Informatics, I feared losing grip on Genetics. If you don’t use it, you’ll lose it, right? Chegg came to my rescue and helped me regain my confidence levels as I answer genetic-related questions. On the Question and Answer board, I receive all levels of questions related to genetics, molecular biology, and botany. Trying to answer all the skipped questions strengthened my subject knowledge, writing skills, and teaching ability.

Q. What do you like the most about Chegg?

At Chegg, I get to study new and advanced topics related to genetics, which I never heard of in my college days. I learned to use new statistical software to answer questions after joining Chegg. Chegg is helping me expand my knowledge.

Q. Cite a challenging moment.

A question on Gene Mapping was one of the most fascinating questions I have ever faced. A true genetic student would love to take up such challenging questions. I managed to solve it and got a star rating. I felt I deserve a pat on the back.

Q. How does your lab work help your teaching work at Chegg?

A Genetic teacher with hands-on lab experience is a rare gem. Textbooks at Chegg are practical-oriented and only a teacher with a hands-on lab experience would be the right one to answer questions from such books. At Chegg, I am able to cater to international students and this is something I take pride in.

Q. How did Chegg help you financially?

Of course, I am financially well off now, thanks to Chegg. Recently, we celebrated wedding anniversary of our parents and I gifted them Golden Couple Rings. (Smiles)

I live with my parents and take care of them. My father is a retired teacher and my mother is a home-maker.

Q. Cite a memorable moment.

In one night, I solved 38 difficult level questions. That was the month I earned the most.

Q. Have you ever get bored of answering?

Never! Genetics is a very interesting subject and one can never get bored.

Q. Have you ever recommended Chegg to anyone?

I did. I introduced my cousin. She once came home and saw me working on Chegg Q&A board and then she found it interesting and applied for the position of EA.

Q. What are your plans for your future?

I wanted to start an R&D lab and settle in Vizag. Earlier, I got opportunities to work for National Institute of Genetics in Japan. However, as I have to look after my parents and so I had to forgo the opportunity. Come what may, I would never discontinue working for Chegg because Chegg helps me remain in touch with my favorite subject. Chegg is always special to me! (Smiles)
