Why GPA is Not Really Matter for Students after Granduation

Some students are really determined to get the highest score as possible they can, with an illution that the hight GPA will help them have a better jobs in the future. As a result, they stay up all night in the library, their books are filled with highlight and notes, studying hard for the finals. In fact, their future employers do not really care about them as much as they thought. Here are four reasons why GPA’s important should not be overemphasized.

1

Inflating grading

Unbeknownst to most of the students, teachers usually give grade A more often than they were years ago. As a result, it is very difficult for employers to determine which students do best because more students are given the as highest as possible grade.

Thanks to the recent study by TCR (Teacher College Record), which shown grade A took 43% of letter grade given. Therefore, students who got A only puts themselves in the top 43% of all college granduated. Once again, it really not easy at all for companies to know which A grades are harder to earn than the others.

Slowing down your application process

When GPA transcript are needed, you have to go back to your old university in order to have an official transcripts. Combining with the bureaucracy of the current government, you might not meet the deadline of employment. Therefore, that is really unnecessary for you to care too much of your GPA transcription because the employers do not have much time to view it properly, it is your resume that will shown them what you are good at.

GPA is not more important than job experience

In general, what the employers need is someone who get the job done, not some bookworm who do not know a thing about working. There are no company that can guide you from top to toes, they also have their workload to do. Companies that have the patience for training their new employees are not really common, and would prefer someone with years of experience to conserve their budget and time.

3

Connection in the field

In addition to experience, knowing people who work on your field is also very important to find a job. If you too concentrate on your studying too much and do not expand your network, things will get harder after you granduated. Without these people, who will help you find those jobs and help you maintain it. These connections would help you look for clients for your business contract, or provide you with good supplier for your next project, etc…

GPA is not everything, because higher GPA does not make you smarter or work more effective than the others. There are many factors that you need more that your GPA, like good performance in your internship or your participation in extracurriculum activities. All of them contribute to who you are, and your overall skills and communication. For example, a student with 9.0 of their GPA without any involment in activities, part-time jobs or internship cannot impress the employers with one that have only 7.0 and records from internship, 3 part-times job and have experience of management in school clubs.

Unemployment concern of the granduated students

Even with the master degree, many of granduated students are confronting the risk of being unemployed. What is the true reason that made companies and firms feel reluctant to hire employees who are fresh granduated? Who are to blame if the students cannot find a job: the government, the employers or students themselves? here are some reasons that we should have think more about.

 

The chance of having working experience when attending university are slim

Beside the theory that students have learned at school, students also need more practical experience come from their field of work. However, busy and inflexible school schedule have been a harness which prevent students from having the chance to have those experience thus leaving the fresh graduate have nothing to write on their resume when apply for a job.

2

The breakdown of the economy is also a factor of unemployment

Making profit are more difficult as the time has passed. Therefore, companies are very careful with their money. They always expect the students to make more value than the salary paid for them. Fresh granduate students, who do not have enough skills and experience, cannot compete with those who has been working for a long time when applying for the job. In addition, inexperience candidate need training in order to work properly, and of course these training courses also cost a lot, making employers have to think twice before decide to hire a fresh granduate.

The illusion of the students about their own career

Most of the students do not have a good perspective of reality: they simply thought that if they granduate, they should have a good job right away. As a result, they refuse to do the job that they view as unworthy for the trouble they had when they spend four years in university. This thought unbeknownst to them, lead these poor students to their unemployment. Therefore, graduated students should know that the start is always hard. It doesn’t make anything different if they graduated at the university, they should do well from the minor job do prove themselves to their employers. Being “picky” when applying for the job is totally not advised.

In addition, some students are very clueless about what skills they need in order to hold their own at the job. They only try to complete their university or college credit, thinking that those are already enough. However, university are very slow to catch up the information about what is the employee requirement of the current economy. The passive attitude of these students had them suffer unemployment need to be change right away.

The development of technology

The development of technology

Contratry to the forementioned reason, this reason of unemployment is inevitable. Computers and machines are more economical solutions to profit compare to workers. A computer can accomplish jobs that need many people to do so with higher accuracy and longer duration. As a result, companies need less workers than they were 20 years ago. In the future, more and more people will be replaced by computers, machines and artificial intelligences.
