TC maximization strategy

Scenario: work at least 30 hours/week to keep afloat; stay if promo is matched by refreshers after RSUs vest (4 year cliff), else jump elsewhere.

Options:
E = English/humanities study (films, literature)
I = interview prep (LC, system design)
T = technical skills (distributed systems, ML)
W = work longer (do needful, projects for promo)

You can choose any one or two of the above for up to 20 extra hours per week. For example:
X + X = 20 hours of X
Y + Z = 10 hours of Y + 10 hours of Z

What's the optimal combination to play?

    TC is for beginners, optimize for passive cash flow instead

      I am a new grad (age 21) suggest some passive cash flows. (maybe I should post this as a question)

      But you build up assets with tc initially.

      Two options for new grads: side hustles (if not already) or ventures using other people's money. Emphasis for new grad should be learning and building expertise though imho. Money follows.

    Why is E even a option.

      Frankly E has done more for my TC than the rest has ever done.

    I think keeping your interviewing skills sharp and pushing for the promo will be most beneficial.
