    What did you major in?

    BTW they don't care about your GPA. All they care about is that you have a degree. That is where the phrase "C's get Degrees" comes from. once you graduate noone is going to care about that one time you had to retake Calc I.

    Well that goes back to which one should I list?

    I figure if I just put my major GPA i might have to list it as MAJOR GPA -

    Rather than just GPA -

    Plus 3.8 looks a lot better than 3.5

    Overall. Anyone can get good grades in a major they actually care about. If you get good grades overall it shows that you are flexible and will succeed even in classes you don't give a sh*t about.

    Depends what his major is. Try getting into a Big 4 accounting firm with a 2.5 GPA.

    GPA isnt all that important, but it doesnt hurt to list. Put 3.5 because if you add the disclaimer to the 3.8 they'll be like what the fcuk? What about the other 25 classes he took

    Not true, I've had about 4 differnet people call me back after I sent them my resume and they wanted to confirm with my that my gpa listed was correct, when we went over my resume.

    Also I had a few government and other jobs list that they require you have at least a minimum 3.0 GPA.

    Read above, half the jobs im applying to require that you have a minimum of 3.0

    On top of this a lot of employers have asked me about my GPA and wanted me to confirm thats what I have as of now.(I just graduated)

    List "gpa 3.5"

    If you put "gpa 3.8" it looks like you're trying to pull a fast one on them and they may see it that you might try to "cheat" the company in the future.

    If you put "major gpa 3.8" they may think you slacked off in classes not pertaining to your major if they do not do a check.


    cliffs: go with the safe "gpa 3.5"

    most of the jobs you'd want won't even consider you unless you have at least a 3.0..

    bro dont list ur gpa UNLESS they specifically ask you for one
    if your gpa is not a perfect 4.0 you dont want to list it bcuz it ultimately shows ur "weakness" as a candidate (eventho most employers could give a furk) in the job hunt game never give companies reasons to not hire you
    if they rly want that info, theyll ask you for it (and just give them ur overall gpa for the degree u listed in your resume), which is a good sign cuz it shows they have interest in you

    no one cares about your major GPA

    if you list GPA as 3.8 and it is your major and not cumulative, you are lying... when companies interview you they ask you what your overall GPA is and say they don't care about the major GPA... Human Resource departments at all of the major fortune 500 companies set minimal requirements for hiring for "X" position based on what has worked in the past. such requirements are recruit heavily from school X. make sure cumulative GPA is at least 3.xx, and make sure candidate's future plans are to stay in the state, etc.

    listing your Major GPA and not listing your overall as well implies that it is very, very low....

    don't listen to the misc, they have no idea what they are talking about....

    This is terrible advice. Everyone, ignore this post and get the best GPA possible, especially if you plan on joining the tech industry or going to grad school.

    Strong responses in this thread

    Whatever you do don't NOT put your GPA, or else they will assume it is sh*t

    I would put both of them and list relevant classes to the job...

    While it is true that job performance and job history is more important than GPA, you never know when you will be asked for GPA or transcripts.

    I applied for a highly competitive engineering program in the government last week, and I was required to submit my transcripts for classes I took 20 years ago.

    I applied for a few jobs as a contractor for the government a few years ago, and I was required to list my GPA. No one asked to see any proof.

    Just don't get caught lying.

    I'm really not sure which one I'd list because they are both good. If you do want to list your major gpa as 3.8 definitely label it as so.
