Why is Shiksha’s Review Project a Game Changer for a Young Professional?

“I am an open, social and a friendly person. I love meeting new people and have a lot of friends. Good communication and writing skills are some of my strengths. Responsibility is one thing I take full pride in, due to which I was chosen to be the Class Representative. When I saw the project by Shiksha.com, it  grabbed my attention as in this project I could employ my networking skills. Since I have a knack for writing, I immediately decided to take up this project” - Pooja Gupta

  • Abhishek Mahajan, Delhi University, Delhi

“The project appeared to be a simple one in the beginning. Once I started working on the project, I understood it requires lot of convincing skills, persuasiveness to make people write 750 letters about their own college. Each reviewer had to be approached and convinced differently. But this project helped me to improve my negotiation and communication skills. Overall it was a nice experience.”
