Dear Experts, Is it necessary for my GPA to be on my resume? I graduated last May with a major in Engineering. Here is how our CAREEREALISM-Approved Experts answered this question on Twitter: Q#392 If notable, sure. Maybe 3.8 or higher on a 4.0 scale. (@teenarose) Q#392 GPA on resume: Some say yes, others say no. If you're good enough in other areas, it won't really matter. (@beneubanks) Q#392 No hard and fast rule. Include GPA on your resume if you rank in the top 5%(ish) of your graduating class. (@ResumeStrategy) Q#392 OK for very recent grads to list great GPA 3.8+ IMHO. Otherwise TMI & could cause employer to reject you prematurely. (@juliaerickson) Q#392 As a new grad, you may be asked for it. But unless they ask, don't willingly provide, unless it is 4.0. (@gradversity) Q#392 Only a 3.5 or higher GPA is worth listing. Pull it off after you've been in the working world 2+ yrs. (@jtodonnell) Q#392 If it's over 3.5, put it on. If not, leave it off. (@louise_fletcher) Q#392 Accd to recent Harris poll of hiring & hr mgrs; 62% require no min GPA; 31% require 3.0 or > and 11% require 3.5 or >. (@lauralabovich) Q#392 You want to highlight the great things. If the GPA is 3.5 or better - yes. If not, leave it off.

You might be tempted to use the generic "I'd like to add you to my professional network on LinkedIn" template, but beware! By not personalizing your message, you could lose a precious opportunity to network.
