Resume Tip: GPA

GPAListing your GPA on your resume is typically suggested practice. If you choose to leave the GPA off your resume, then be prepared to be able to answer why your GPA is not listed. Some companies screen by GPA and having it on your resume could increase your chances for an interview. If your GPA is low, then it is a judgment call if you want to list it.

Additional Tip: If your major GPA is higher than your cumulative GPA, then you could list both on your resume.
