What can you do with a low GPA?

How can you get a job or internship if you have a low GPA? Grades are not the end of the world; I did poorly on exams (I still do, I hate the “a or c” or “all of the above” questions), and your self worth is not determined by your grades. You are determined by the type of person you put out in this world. Not ever did my grades ever come into question in my job in #consulting. In fact most companies don’t even ask after your first job.

If you ARE trying to find an internship or job and you have a low gpa, what can you do then? Here are the tips I have for you that I personally did in school to maximize my chances for a great entry level job!

Which one would you try to do today? Which one have you tried before? Let me know in the comments!

How to Get a JOB OR INTERNSHIP with a LOW GPA | How I Got My Job in Consulting

In my Job and Internships Rejections Story video, I went over how I got rejected by many jobs and internships due to a low GPA, but I worked my way up to eventually land a full time job in NYC at Accenture, my DREAM JOB! Due to BU’s intense grades deflation, my GPA took a huge hit, but I was able to get back up on my feet. It was a long and hard journey, but these are all my tips I used.
