So I have a 2.99 right now as I continue job hunting. Some background may help:
- Computer Science Major
- First two years of college did not go so well. My average GPA of those four semesters is about a 2.6-2.7. However, after some job experience and guidance from a professor of mine, my GPA shot up! My average GPA of the last three semesters has been about a 3.38 and will continue to keep rising. Just FYI, most of my courses the past three semesters were upper-level CS courses/Astronomy courses/English courses. Probably took only one "easy" course out of those three semesters.
- As of now, I have two years internship experience working at a lab on campus specializing in transportation software. Right when I started working, when my GPA shot up...Don't really know why.
I keep hearing people say that without a 3.0, I cannot get a job out of college. Is this really true?
