  1. 1.

    Can you talk to me about your GPA during undergraduate/graduate school?

      The interviewer would like further details on your more significant successes as a post-secondary student. Are you satisfied with your GPA or would you change it if you could? Talk to the interviewer about your post-secondary experience. You can keep your answer brief and to the point.

      If you were satisfied with your post-secondary experience: 'I graduated top of my class and am very proud of my accomplishments during University. The experience taught me to study hard and set goals for myself.'

      If you were not satisfied with your post-secondary experience: "I feel that my GPA could have been higher; however, I was working full time while attending classes. All in all, I did learn a lot about discipline and commitment."

      "I feel that my GPA could have been higher; however, I was working full time while attending classes. All in all, I did learn a lot about discipline and commitment."

      Rachelle's Answer

      "I had a 3.8 GPA but did strive for a 4.0. I understand where I feel short, but I was able to achieve a spot on the football team, and earned two scholarships as well."

      "Sure, I had a 7.3 GPA out of 10 in my undergraduate and had a 3.7 GPA out of 4 in my Master's. I'm sure I could've done better in my undergraduate if I've focused more, but anyways I think I did good in my Master's and learned so many things."

      Rachelle's Answer

      This answer is a good start! You mention doing better and focusing more during your undergrad. I suggest including a positive statement around this time. Otherwise, you could signal your interviewer to view that time as underachieving. You should be very proud of your accomplishment during your Master's! It would be beneficial to discuss the action steps you took to achieve this high grade and speak in detail of the greatest lessons you learned.

      "My overall GPA is 4.0, while I was working full time while attending classes. All in all, I did learn a lot about discipline and commitment."

      Rachelle's Answer

      Awesome! You sound confident and capable. It's terrific that you added in what you learned. Now, try adding in what you will do to apply this discipline and commitment should you be hired by Amazon.
