    Rejected From Consideration Due to College GPA

    by shido321 ·

    I had a recruiter contact me about a job she thought I would be a good fit for. It was “Deployment Engineer.” I didn’t think I was qualified, but I expressed interest nonetheless.

    I briefly discussed the role with her yesterday, and she told me she’d call tomorrow outlining more details, salary expectations, etc after I submitted an official application.

    Received phone call today regarding the position. told that I won’t be considered any more due to my Graduation Year (2020) / Grade Point Average.

    Admittedly, it isn’t very good (2.6) but I have my Bachelor’s, no academic violations or anything.

    Never thought there would be a day that this would come back to haunt me. It was mandatory on the application, otherwise I would have left it out.

    pretty disheartened.

      Sorry to hear of your experience with that potential job. It sucks that it happened that way and that no other considerations were offered. Kind of like saying, “What do you call a doctor who graduated last in their class, Doctor”.

      Your best bet in the future when faced with such challenges, try to emphasize what you have already accomplished/experienced in your field of study. GPA still weighs heavy, but emphasize the positive as best as you can.
