Rejected From Consideration Due to College GPA
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.
