As most of my students would know, I have been with IMS for more than a decade now.
But I started teaching for aptitude tests way back in the past, right after my graduation while preparing for the CAT a second time around.
At that time I felt that the teaching stint had a great role to play in my cracking the CAT; I felt the teaching made my thought process very clear when faced with a problem since one has to have utmost clarity of thought to explain a problem in such a way as many students understand the solution right away. Also one is always looking to find better, cleaner or to put it simply more elegant solutions to problems.
My first 6 years stint with IMS was with the Academics Dept and the last six months have been at the front-end teaching as well as running the business.
Starting I have moved back to the IMS HO in Mumbai, as the Chief Learning Officer (CLO) for IMS.
Over the past year, I have met a lot of students across the country who are readers of the blog, so I was wondering if any you might be interested in working with us.
We are looking for people to work with us in the digital content development team for the Verbal and Quant areas. The role involves working with our subject matter experts, supporting them to create learning and strategy videos across products.
The remuneration will be depending on your profile. The roles will be based out of Mumbai.
More importantly, if you are taking another shot at the CAT, you have the brains of the best mentors to pick :-).
If any of you are interested then drop in a mail to firstname.lastname@example.org with the following:
- A resume or CV
- A short answer as to why you feel you have the skill sets to take up a teaching role or a content development role in Verbal/QA-DI-LR. Experience is not mandatory since you have to start somewhere, I myself had no experience at all when I started teaching or designing content. Feel free to include anything that you feel will let us know why you feel you have the potential to take up the role — CAT, XAT, GMAT or other exam test scores (SimCAT scores, if you have a tendency to bomb on test day), reading habits, prior informal teaching, love for the section, communication skills — anything that you feel captures your suitability.
