Does GPA matter to you when interviewing candidates?

Yes. Unless the candidate can convince me otherwise (subtly and proactively)

Yes it does

Depends on if they have other work experience that makes me believe they don’t need a data point to indicate their work ethic. If you have no experience then yes, a great GPA is helpful, if you had 3 strong internships and has two campus jobs I don’t need it

3 strong internships with no job conversion is a question mark...

Mostly as an example, but I’ve seen various students have sophomore internship with no expectation of a full time role and two junior year internships where they didn’t like the culture or there wasn’t a role available or the location wasn’t of preference.

I just did a technical interview with one of the FANG companies. I was actually contacted by a sourcer for a specific role at a specific team based on my professional background— for example, Gaming. But I would like to know if I can send my application materials to other teams as well, that are in a different “field” like Search or Customer service. Is it acceptable to mention this in my next chat with recruiter or sourcer? Or will this jeopardize my opportunity?

My boss makes jokes about me being from a different country whenever there is a work meeting or a gathering with coworkers, even though he knows where I am from. This usually occurs when I meet new work-related people or for example if I am in a situation that involves ethnic related subjects.

What is this? This is normal?

The first time I ignored that, but now it has become a pattern and is bothering me now. I am south-American working in the UK.
