Place 72 – Day 476: Vancouver, BC – PNP Received!

Curtis’ Day

Curtis had a team.meeting at 09:30 and then after that he had to remove 2 mailbox permissions for someone and then just on a call with them and make some changes on their email.

After he did that, he did the same with another person.

Curtis then had to reach out to someone to figure out their equipment for when they start in the new year, as well as obtain their address.

After lunch, Curtis did some tickets and then did a LONG questionnaire he needed to do for work.

Curtis got an email in the early evening stating he had been accepted for his provincial nomination, which means he now should be able to apply for Permanent Residency, as well as being able to get a work permit, which is excellent!

Kim’s Day

Kim started her day with a team meeting where she updated their manager about the recruitment process for a new hire and discussed the possibility of adding another role for recruitment, which was approved. As a result Kim started some research and began to form a job listing, she has also reached out to the head of technology to see the needs that his department would have from this new position.

For the rest of the morning Kim set up a laptop for a new starter and arranged for a laptop sent out last week to be returned as that person is currently working from their machine and a new starter will joining would use it more. So she arranged a same day courier for that, which was great as Apple were out of stock for the laptop that Kim needs.

In the early afternoon Kim hosted the weekly social call where only one other person joined. It was so nice to have a chat with this person as they only started with the company this week so ot was a great time to have an informal chat and get to know each other.

After the call Kim sat down to take a better look at the spreadsheet of new information for the facilities project. She reviewed it, added notes and then sent it back for the person to gather more information and set up meetings.

Kim then popped out to ship the laptop she set up in the morning out to the new starter for next week. She also took the time to drop the company card back to her colleague. They then joined Kim on the walk back home (both in masks and distanced) to get out and enjoy some fresh air.

When she got back home Kim focused on setting up the other laptop that was delivered while she was out for the other new starter who joins soon. Once that was set up Kim focused on some more HR learning and had a call about the facilities project.

As she was in the zone with all things HR Kim took the time to update peoples info on the HR system and reach out to people to remind them if gaps that they have in their profiles.

Evening

Curtis had the remaining leftovers and Kim had some chicken, potato and vegetables for dinner.

We watched some TV and some YouTube and then we each reached out to our former companies to get reference letters confirming that we worked there, which we’ll need for the next step of the process.

We watched more TV and played some games and then headed to bed.


This Time Last Year!


Mr & Mrs Hale
