Refreshing my resume and need to vent a thank you to the prof who had to give me the A- in one of my final 4 classes (other 3 were A’s) in the last semester of college. I think of it every time I have to write GPA:3.49

Why do you have your GPA on your resume?

Those Romans were just having fun with those names and we had to take them and make them academic!

Literally only got one C in college in a strategic management class because the professor was a dick and I was working 2 jobs / spread thin. WHOS STRATEGIC NOW BISH.

LOL. I got a C in speech communication bc my professor dropped 30pts from my final claiming I’d missed class more than 3 allowed number of absences (that was a lie! I’d calculated by skips very precisely! I think he just hated me bc I was shy.) so my B went to a C. I was very disappointed. But then went on to emcee several school events, was on school radio, kept taking on leadership roles where I had to speak to crowds, and now I’m told my speech communication is one of the first things that stands out about me. 😆

In high school I graduated with a 3.97 (my school didn’t go beyond 4). The teacher refused to round up a 89.45. That was my only B in high school and college. I still think of it too, my friends from school even tease me

I’m surprised you got into Deloitte with that GPA.

I have just at 2 YOE so thought I needed to include. Didn’t have much luck finding examples tailored to 2 YOE so thought I needed the filler. Sounds like I can leave it off. As a side note if anyone has examples they’d be willing to share I’d appreciate it!

I feel that. I graduated with a 3.48 years ago and it still irks me.

I still have my high school GPA on my resume and I have 5 YOE

It is. I’m just playing lol

I’ve never had my gpa on my resume (it was shit). I could have put 4.0 for all it mattered tho, I’ve never had a company ask for transcripts across multiple Fortune 500 & consulting.

My business partner and I are trying to buy a small business through sba lending. He’s going to be putting down the full down payment and has assets for personal guarantee. I’ll be paying back my portion of the down payment. He will continue to work his daily job meanwhile I’ll quit my corp job and run the business. He’s been told giving me 30% equity is highest he should go. Does that seem fair? Since I’ll be quitting and relocating and running the business shld I get more
