Can I ask dating questions on this site? I'm drawing so many parallels between dating and interviewing.
(I speak in jest.)

@BenBrocka It needs all the details you asked for (although the answer is rarely going to be "GPA"; that's a weed-put detail rather an a weed-in, usually).

@MattChan No, but feel free to ask on Programmers ;)

@jcmeloni I was wondering why the comparison was even there honestly;but some recent grads seem to really think the GPA is what matters without a protfolio, so maybe it could be a useful question
I think even Google ditched their silly GPA requirements for people that have already had jobs
@MattChan "I'm being screwed by my boss, what should I do?"
 
@BenBrocka Yeah, I could certainly disabuse people of that notion -- but that is said in a lot of other answers re: resumes that we already have, so if that ends up being the core of the question, it could almost be closed as a dupe. ish. I dunno.

@BenBrocka @jcmeloni I've made an edit to the question. Can one of you review it and see if it would be worth reopening the question now?
 
@Rachel better, but IMO still lacking required details. I assume he's coming out of college (where GPA matters a little, maybe), but technically he could be out of high school (where no one in the world would care about your GPA). It's also not clear if he has a portfolio currently...
 
Would the answer be different if he was coming out of high school instead of college?
 
Honestly I can't imagine an answer saying "focus on the GPA" either way, I guess you're right about that
 
I think GPA is better in low-end jobs where a portfolio is not expected, or if you have no work at all to show. If you have anything at all worth showing as part of your portfolio, you should be focused on that
There actually is a question on here about how important GPAs are on resumes already. I wouldn't really call it a duplicate, but I would call it related: workplace.stackexchange.com/q/209/316
Hrrrmm I just now noticed this is a question I've looked at already

Do we want this? Looks like the user has abandoned the site. The edit improves it but I'm not a big fan of orphan questions

Q: How bad does it look to have left a job soon after starting?

unitedgremlinI have a job I would like to leave. On advice from friends and parents I have stayed. Their primary concern is that it would look bad on my resume if I left only after a few months of joining. My concerns with the job are as follows: Could be out of business in a few months from lack of cash f...

@BenBrocka We already have a question here about how not to look like one is job-hopping, that is more on-topic and appropriate (in that it is a specific, answerable question, etc)...I don't particularly think this question is one we should take.
 
@jcmeloni sounds good to me
ohhh yeah I think I do remember that question
