Q10.2 How important is GPA in job search?
Please see advice from the Careers and Placement Section of CEDARS below:
“GPA is only one of the many factors that employers consider when reviewing job applications and suitability of applicants for their vacancies. Apart from academic achievement, they may also look at the candidates’ performance during interview as well as other selection criteria including their past experience, career aspiration, technical fit, attitude and other soft skills.
Due to COVID-19, both the timing and mode of students’ learning and examinations have been impacted in the past year. It would be helpful if students can help their potential employers understand the special circumstance(s), and describe how they have come up with their personal choice of GPA vs Pass/Fail option. If they need advice or assistance, they are welcome to contact the Careers and Placement office or book for a one-on-one session to meet and discuss with our Student Advising Officers.”
