Job Search / Grade Requirements for getting a summer job
« on: December 26, 2005, 01:22:31 AM »

I was just curious about this. So if a student got for instance all C's or all B's and a D or something to that effect, should they not apply to any job which requests a copy of their transcripts? I am just wondering what happens to the students who didn't get all A's or B's. Are they doomed? Or are there plenty of jobs which don't ask for first semester grades?

I felt confident when I took my exams well except for one, but as a first year student I don't know what to expect. So these thoughts have run across my mind, since I know alot of jobs request to see your 1st semester grades. Ok, as you can see I am still  waiting to recieve my grades.  ???

Thanks  :)

I didnt realize there was a empahsis on obtaining a writing sample from your 1L job. So then does it matter where you work then or does it only matter as long as you come away with a writing sample? Also, how important will this writing sample be for your 2L job search? No one at our school ever mentioned this being so important.

Thanks  :)

At our school we had two year long courses which we wont get a grade for until spring. That leaves us with only 3 classes we'll actually have a final grade for come second semester. Most of the jobs i've seen so far don't seem to be to concerned with grades, they mainly require resume, cover letter and a writing sample. But I suppose it varies from job to job since I have seen a few who want reccomendations and transcripts as well.

Good Luck! :)
