This surprises me, because I haven’t needed it past my internship. I’ve done several interviews testing the market which I didn’t pursue and switched firms once. Not sure why it matters once you pass the CPA, have experience, and a promotion.

In the interview? No. The HR person before the interview? Yes, if not provided in application / resume.

I was asked by the supervisor of the role for my GPA when I was applying to a manager role. I had five years of experience and was just surprised as I didn’t know the exact number off the top of my head, but knew that it was above a 3.75.

4yoe - i left ey couple months ago and no one asked for my gpa...

I listed it on my resume. The partner during my internship asked why it was so low (3.2) and I said it was freshman year gen ed classes and said it’s been going up. End of story. Finished with a 3.3. Got the internship. Still work for EY.

If it’s higher, I would list your Major GPA. That would factor out the gen ed classes.

For your first job of course they want to know. I had a 4.0 and that made them happy. After that they don't give a shit what happened in college.

Note: My university isn't considered prestigious

Currently interviewing for a GC role at a crypto-focused hedge fund. They’re mostly focused on VC deal experience, but would prefer someone with some compliance experience. My background is in M&A and Capital Markets, so I have little-to-no crypto-fund compliance experience. I’d like to show them I’m serious about learning though. Anyone know of a good way for me to get some quick, relevant experience? Maybe a course, certificate program or other training I could enroll in to bolster my resume

Hello, fellow newbie here 😀
Was wondering if yall know of any remote sales jobs with a good starting base salary? I'm doing great at my current role selling senior health insurance (76k give or take a year) but I know I'm capable of selling at a higher commission range. My calls at my last company were all cold (around 100 a day). I got job offers as a recruiter and also a few SDR offers but both fields the base is under 45k. I have a four year degree and one year of sales experience. Thank you
