Week 11 plan

Filed under: Shreyas Ragavan — Shreyas Ragavan @ 4:51 a.m.

Priority 1: 1, 2, 4, 5, 6, 9, 10
Priority 2: 7, 8, 12, 3
Priority 3: 11

  1. [ ] Complete meditation post on stupidity. Analysis 2.
  2. [ ] Update profile on Indeed.
    1. Including profile summary, skills, simple generic cover letter, resume and skills. This will enable me to quickly apply to suitable vacancies.
  3. [ ] Add more company profiles and job descriptions focusing on Vancouver
  4. [ ] Review JD Composite.
  5. [ ] Formulate more lucid plan to cover the skill deficits, with time lines. Discuss the draft in Chan.
  6. [ ] Create Resume V3.
    1. This wil be in-line with the reviewed JD composite as well.
    2. [ ] Request feedback from chan on this. Perhaps consider sharing this version with Nicoleci, or decide if another iteration is desired.
    3. The only major component that should be included : are projects related to ML. Though a link to projets is provided in the CV - per my understanding, the website will be visited, only if the contents of the CV are interesting.
  7. Continue Iterating on the definition of 'interesting companies' / 'Jobs'.
    1. Add smaller companies to this list.
    2. Add this list and explanation as a part fo the job search document for ready reference.
  8. [ ] Cover recruitment agencies in company profile list.
    1. Follow up regarding pending responses.
    2. Send updated CV to the new contacts made last week.
  9. [ ] Send out job applications with Resume V2.
    1. Maintain a record of the applications sent.
    2. Track down contacts for heads-up / follow-up.
  10. [ ] Connect with the pending Enbridge contact (due to return from travel on 23rd Sep) to discuss profile and strategy.
    1. This is basically a phone call and should not take long.
  11. [ ] Continue exploring alternative approaches.
    1. The discussions on CR in chan have been interesting. I took a superficial look at Uruguay's immigration procedure last week. The procedure does not appear prohibitive, and there are somes similarities with Canadian PR. There may be TMSR blog posts that are more instructive in this regard. In any case, far more extensive research is clearly required to even formulate a plan.
  12. [ ] Review github website (
    1. [ ] Re-align to emphasise data + analytics, supported by domain knowledge rather than the other way round as it is currently.


  1. Your priorities though don't really work at all. For one thing, there's way too many on top priority and for the other, practice doesn't seem to align with it anyway.

    Make it simpler, dev-style: must-do and time-permitting; it's then enough to simply mention the "time-permitting" list since the rest is clear. The tasks in must-do will happen (and plan them accordingly, with time to spare) while the time-permitting ones will happen only if they can be squeezed in this week - if not, they should at some point become must-do or otherwise you might just as well drop them entirely.

  2. [...] post supercedes the earlier plan in line with Diana's comment. The tasks are re-arranged into a main list which are must-do tasks, and a separate list of [...]
