The story started
Hi everyone, I’m Usman Jatoi Jatoi, a web designer at Pearl Lemon Group. I’ve been with the company for 8 months now, and I’m really enjoying my time here. I’ve learned a lot and grown a lot as a designer.
One of the biggest things I’ve learned is how to manage my time and workload effectively. When I first started, I was a bit overwhelmed by the amount of work I had to do. But I quickly learned how to prioritize my tasks and stay on top of my deadlines.
I’ve also learned a lot about teamwork and communication. It’s important to be able to work well with others, and to communicate effectively both verbally and in writing. I’ve also learned how to use the right tools and software to help me with my work.
I’ve had a great experience working at Pearl Lemon Group. The company is very supportive, and the team is really friendly and helpful. I’ve learned a lot from my colleagues, and I’ve also had the opportunity to work on some really challenging and rewarding projects.
I shared my whole journey here from the trial process to reaching 8 months here. I hope this gives you a better understanding of my experience at Pearl Lemon Group.

After that, Deepak Personally Congrats Me for Joining the Company
And That’s How I got into the Company ( Pearl Lemon Group )
My First Task was To design WeddingChiefs.com Website.
For Creating a Website, We Need a Few Things
The deadline was given to me To Build the Website in 3 days. I gave my 100% & made it 🙂
Deepak was Pleased with my Work and gave a shout-out to me Personally and Also In the PearlLemon Updates Group.
After That, I did Quick Team Call With Team, Where Team Introduced themselves and their Rules. I was Bit Confused and Nervous, Then But OverAll, it was a Great Experience.
The first month was a Unique Learning Experience for me. Before that, I was not aware of How Team Works, How Workflow work, How to manage Task Properly and e.t.c

Updating Work In Group With Other Mine Team Members
( Daksh & Anuskha )
Team Members Helped Me alot When I needed them, Specially Kaushal, Ali, Daksh, and Catherine.
Let’s Talk How They Help Me.
In the early days, when I was Newbie, I faced Alot of Problems. Then Kaushal ( head of the design team ) Helped me To Fix Those Issues and Also Did Google Meet With Me :). Kaushal, Thank you alot.
As a designer, sometimes I am unaware of What issues are Happening With websites. Once Dee told me to Work on the Pearl Lemon Main Website. For that, I had to Enable Elementor Pro ( Page designing Tool for WordPress), But when I enabled it, the Website went down, and I got scared because the website was fully wiped. Everyone was on the Weekend
But When I messaged Ali, He Helped me get the Website Recover in 15 Mints. Ali, thank you a lot
Deepak asked me to Work on Publishing New pages, But I was unaware of the Process. Daksh did a Quick call with me And told me about each process of getting Page Live. Daksh, thank you a lot.
I started Joining Continuous Meetings and Stands Up and communicating with My Team. I started Learning How Teams Work, How Remote Agencies Manage their People, How I need to Fulfill my tasks, and What tasks I need to do Apart from Designing so the Accountability team can know What I’m Working on etc.
And in the sense of what task I’m Completing:
1: Joining Team Meetings & Standups:
Weekly Team meeting
2: While Starting My Work, I send Sod to Internal Team Group
3: I Record My Screen and Tell On what Task I’m Working on and how designs are looking before Using a Tool called Loom
4: I update my Task In Design & Dev Group, so my team also Know what I’m Working on
5: After That, I start Working on My task. In End of the Day, I record my loom and Send it To the internal Group, and my design and Dev Group
