Companies Don’t want GPA [Grade Point Average]

with one comment

Hey dudes. i was reading an article by paul graham the founder of viaweb(yahoo stores uses viaweb. basically it is integrated into yahoo!! and also he is an expert in LISP)

That was a big ONE and i found the following in his article :

“… when I became an employer, I didn’t care about GPAs. In fact, we actively sought out people who’d failed out of school. We once put up posters around Harvard saying “Did you just get kicked out for doing badly in your classes because you spent all your time working on some project of your own? Come work for us!” We managed to find a kid who had been, and he was a great hacker.”

Hmm so much for GPA.
