Christina Morales-Eddy, Corporate Tax Accountant II
This is a really good question! Honestly, I did not have the greatest GPA when I graduated from undergrad. But, I knew that I needed to have one in order to be looked at by potential employers. So…I stayed on another year to wrap up a Master’s Degree in Accountancy and gained a better GPA and a job offer during the first semester.
Having a great college GPA gets your foot in the door with your first employer so that you can work and gain the real-life experience that will have be what your future employers look at. They both work hand in hand.
