Yea, this is the reason why I think I screwed myself over in a 2nd interview for a really good summer internship. I went in it too nervous and stressed out and over prepared for it. But I guess it was a learning experience. For that company, those internships and jobs were really competitive. There were like 14 people there with me interviewing from different colleges, not only for internships but for jobs too. And that company had about 3-4 other days where they interviewed other groups of people.

I have only done 4 interviews total while in college, two of those were with the company above. I got one part-time internship, so I guess I am 1 for 3. :lol:

:lol: This one is for sure. When someone has other stuff to say, you do not get much responses. But you get so much advice with this thread relating to jobs, school and other things.

Of course it matters. After you make the GPA cutoff congrats now you are in a pile of papers along with at least 20-30 other people on the low end. Now I am going to scan these pieces of papers without knowing your glorious interpersonal skills for key phrases. Then after I narrow these down to 3-5 I will bring you in. You think you are the only one with glorious interpersonal skills and confidence?

Those things matter in an interview but it is a just a part of an overall package.

I'm starting to doubt you work for a large company if that's how you think the interview process works.

This is the "blueprint" for all the major financial/tech/consulting corps:

1. Internal Databases (Feeder Schools & Referals)
2. Decent Resume + Requirements
3. Phone Interview or Candidate dinner
4. On Site Interview.

The HR department for the Goldmans, MC firms, Apple's are rather large and a phone interview is used to narrow down the candidates a lot more than a simple resume. Seeing as how Shipati goes to a decent 4 year school, I"m assuming he's applying through his school.

I thought what ComboGuardCity was saying is once you get in for the interview, your GPA does not really matter. It is up to you.

I thought what 21shumpshumpst was saying is do not just try to get the minimum GPA (3.00) because sometimes employers get much more applicants than expected, and they will up the GPA requirement to filter out applicants.

Lol? Your statement was that after you make the cut off For gpa all you need to show is interpersonal skills and confidence. I said that only matters once you get the interview to get to that point of even a phone interview your resume will be screened with the 50 others that will pass the gpa threshold.

Even then the hiring manager which is usually vp level or above won't have the time or desire to go through even 5 resumes and have 5 phone interviews. What happens is hr gets 100 of these resumes . Checks for basic things to see if thu fit the criteria required for the job and passes along to the hiring manager the resumes that make hrs cut. Then the hiring manager will a lot of times share these resumes with the people in the dept who will work directly with this person and get their opinion on the resumes then he or she will look at those resumes and give their opinion. The hiring manager has to make the final decision as this person will count against their depts budget even if they won't work directly with them. They will then after 3 or 4 different people have looked at the resumes and made cuts SOLELY on resumes will they have screening calls where finally you can show your super duper interpersonal skills.

But of course you know better and I've never worked for a fortune 500 company or been part of this process. Rofl .. A+ for effort, try harder next time rofl

When was the last time you talked to anyone from HR/Recruiting and how they conduct business? Big companies have now switched over to a multi-round process, which invloves an dinner that gets all the candidates together. They then narrow it down from 20+. They're recruiting in bunches at this point and then cutting down after seeing the candiates in person. This only applies to college recruits however.

I'm done with this topic because it doesn't really effect me either way. Stay Confident Shipati :lol:

My mother owns her own recruiting firm, and I've worked with her a bunch of times. I can confirm, CGC. But it's not always the case.

I appreciate the fact that most posters on this board are young as sh*t. But it's sad that there isn't a place for people with real problems/stories to post their personal sh*t.

I could tell some interesting ass stories here, but the only people who'd check it are all college kids with no perspective or anything interesting to say.

F*ck tonight was fun. Oh well.

As you get older, you realize how hot hot girls really are. College guys are spoiled and think all ass is easy, all ass is hot as sh*t. It's ridiculous for single guys in their 30s to come on here and describe real life. This sticky is entirely about boring-ass college-age problems, not about the ridiculous....

Edit.
