Introducing a New Expert Content Section: Careers
Hey, everybody. Recently I've been offered several Software Engineering internship positions for the Summer and I have to pick one of them. They are not Big 4.
I aced all of the interviews, but the only big problem is that I lied about my GPA when I filled out applications several months ago. Please try to understand me. I know I did an immoral thing but I had no other choice. Noone would even pay attention to my application when he sees GPA 2.4. I have a low GPA because I failed one, got D on the other, and got C on my general classes. I'm retaking them right now and going for an A on both and a >3.2 GPA after this semester. I have really good coding skills (and have good grades on my major classes) but I screwed up on those three GenEd classes. The companies that offered me position haven't even mentioned about subtmitting my transcripts yet, after passing interviews. I know a lot of people lie on their resumes about their GPA and could get away with it.
From your personal internship experience, how often do employers require transcripts? Do they want transcripts before you start working (after interview)?
