Exams Supervisor in All India
on January 15, 2021
Competitive working and get to meet new people
The freelancing job (Invigilation) covers conducting Exams for different universities globally. It involves in setting up and exam room before the exam, being vigilant and performing administrative tasks during exam and evaluating performance post exam. This is the only job where you finish your days work in the same day and start the new day fresh. No targets. A great place to learn customer interactions with having the opportunity to grow very quickly. One can work for few days in a month and make a good enough salary for a month.No age limit to apply for this job.The working days in goa are limited as the number of people taking exams are limited. Invigilators do travel to other states of India to perform same work (company paid expense) (currently COVID-19 restrictions apply).

It is not recommended especially for senior people above 40 years of age to apply for freelance jobs in this organization
Frankly speaking, it is not a place for senior people to work for such an organization albeit as a freelancer. The supervisors are mostly much younger people with the typical "corporate" attitude. Mostly, they work fulltime in IT and other good companies and supervise test events during the weekends. And dont ask about the attitude of these guys and girls. They treat the invigilators (who are also freelancers like them) very cheaply. They are admonished and humiliated for silly reasons.The sad part is that the top management monitors all these things sitting either in Chennai or somewhere in Gurgaon. They are eventually bothered about conducting the test events seamlessly without the slightest concern about the working conditions of the ground level staff. Taking advantage of this, the supervisors play their game of politics and dictatorship to the maximum extent possible. Hence I wouldn't recommend people especially people above 40 years applying for freelance jobs in this organization.

No scope of growth
The company is archaic in its policies and processes. If you are ambitious and want to grow in your field, this is not the place for you. There is clear demarcation and disconnect between senior management team and the on ground team and under the garb of collaboration, the pace of work suffers.
