Job Search / Grade Requirements for getting a summer job
« on: December 26, 2005, 12:22:31 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! :)

Well I have a Dell 600m which i'd purchased for school in late August and it crashed in December during finals! they had to send me a new hard drive which wasn't even new, it was refurbished!

thank goodness, I had my outlines and etc saved to my memory stick or else i would have been screwed! I can't imagine what would have happened if it had crashed in the middle of the semester.

Anyhow, i really don't like their custormer service. You have to wait on the phone for like an hour to speak with someone.Their online chat customer service is pretty good though.

Alot of other students have the Dell 600m, but honestly after what happened to me after owning it for such a short time, i don't think i'd buy another Dell. Besides it crashing though it works quite nicely and i have no other complaints.

Just my 2 cents  :D

I've heard pretty good things about John Marshall and Florida Coastal. Dont know which is better though. Thomas Jefferson from i hear isnt so great.
