International students often focus on GPA in the job search. I hear a lot of questions like:
Does GPA matter for engineering jobs?
Do employers look at your GPA?
How important is GPA in the job search?
The truth is that GPA isn’t nearly as important in your job or internship search as you think. Companies that hire international students and sponsor h1b aren’t looking for a good GPA. They’re looking for experienced students with specific skills. Even entry level OPT jobs for students require more than just a GPA.
