I haven’t written one of these in a while and there’s no better way to resume than by writing about Rakshitha. Every time TJ and I are asked about how we met, we make it a point to mention that we’re thankful to Deeksha for all the training and for helping us find each other. You can go "Awwww" now. We understand. Well, there’s one additional benefit to having studied at Deeksha. We get to interact with a lot of talented kids who think they’ve experienced what we have because they too went to Deeksha. One such friend is Rakshitha.
We’ve had a lot of people apply to join us on our journey, but Rakshitha stands out for her sheer hunger. She had a stressful day job and was applying to a bunch of places, but managed to convince us that she’d make time to work on content for the Eventosaur Learn Pages. She gelled superbly with the rest of the team during weekends and managed to teach us so much in a short span of time.
Rakshitha is off to spend a year at the Young India Fellowship! We can’t wait to see a new and improved Rakshitha next year and wish her all the best with all her endeavours. She’ll always be part of the Eventosaur Family. We asked her to write about her experience so far and here’s what she had to say:
My journey with Eventosaur started with random stalking of mutual friends.
I was watching Nikhil pitch about Eventosaur on a facebook video. I looked into the website and was excited about the idea of event planning through an online platform. It sounded really cool to me. To join business development team, Nikhil had mentioned that we had to contact him through twitter . So, having created an account and tweeting served the purpose. That was it!
He was happy to meet and listen to my thoughts.
Unlike the mainstream process of interviews, resumes and random riddle-based questions in a scary box, we spoke on hangouts and met for coffee at a Darshini.
While he explained the working style and stuff they do, I was even more convinced that I wanted to be a part of Eventosaur.
With respect to work, Varsha edited my articles. She was an amazing editor. Editing and coordinating with her was as simple as a Telegram ping. I didn't have to write loads of emails and wait of weeks to get responses. I'd hate it. She was patient and gave me actionable feedback each time with useful links to learn from as well.
Nikhil was the boss-editor who edited after Varsha. I used to learn from his videos and blog posts on how to improve content writing. * Super like *
I loved the idea of agile content sprints. Those days felt super productive.
Overall, I was really lucky to have met these folks. Good that my Deeksha credentials came to use.
It feels so good to work with set of people whom you can learn so much from. I'll get back to writing for Eventosaur soon :)
PS: I could laugh all day at those sarcastic remarks and subtle jokes. Oh ya..Nikhil's puns also .
I hope this wasn't too much to edit :O
