A lot of people still don’t believe there’s a high correlation between good grades and work life success. Could it be that those who poo poo good grades as unnecessary are the ones who didn’t get good grades themselves? Let’s imagine for the next couple seconds poor grades are poor indicators of success, even though for the first 22 years of your life, they are used in every aspect of progress. Now that you’ve had your couple seconds, let’s snap back to reality.
Here you are, about to graduate college with a mediocre “B” average and you’re getting shot down during interviews left and right, assuming you are getting any. From the employer’s perspective, they can interview from any number of schools, each with a plethora of “A” students, so why bother with you? Your stubborn self still holds on to the belief that grades don’t matter, because you know you’re going to be a star some day.
