View Thread: IT jobs: What's more important, skill or grades and college?
  • User profile image

    Good grades are just indicative of skill, at least when you're taking a moderately difficult set of courses at an accredited institution.  I mean, if I was hiring, and my choices were between good grades and bad grades, the bad grades person would really have to be stellar in an interview (if I let them get that far).  Experience is very important, so it can be an equalizer.
    For me, I have good grades and good experience: 8 months of internship and other things.
