Jyoti Shukl

Let us introduce you to a power user of the Apna app - Jyoti Shukl. Who is she? How did she become a power user, what did she do as a power user and where does she stand in life professionally?

Jyoti Shukl, just like several other people, had lost her job at the onset of the nationwide lockdown in 2020.  Soon after, she downloaded the Apna app and started applying for jobs in the healthcare category. 

Being a healthcare worker, she wanted to help fellow Indians deal with the clutches of this evil virus, in whatever way she could. She started interacting with users in the apna groups. 

Jyoti started posting general tips related to Covid-19.  As the connections in her professional network began to grow, she got noticed by one of the most prominent private hospitals in Mumbai and landed a job as a nurse where she was responsible for taking care of Covid patients. Her livelihood was restored and her wish to help the country was being fulfilled too. 

Now, while most people uninstall job apps after finding work, Jyoti remained active on the apna app because she had understood the value of professional networking. This is where apna was different from other job apps.  Being a hardworking and resourceful person, Jyoti kept posting updates from her work life. She started dabbling in groups like Start your Business, Learn English and other such groups to learn new skills and gain more knowledge. 

Today she is a famous influencer among millions of apna users and one of the most loved people in the community. She has started two businesses with people she met on the app:  

  • A recruitment agency 
  • A mask selling trade
