In applying for a job and they're asking for my gpa, the problem is that it's not my best and I don't know if they're asking for cumulative or just now. I can't even find help for this, my gpa will more then likely be my reason for rejection if it's that important D:
Why do Jobs need your highschool GPA?
What Guys Said 1
They ask because it is an indicator of your work ethic. Once you get beyond applying for unskilled jobs they won't be asking for your GPA. I don't mean anything bad about "unskilled", I'm just referring to the difference between a job you're applying for now and jobs that require specific degrees, certifications, or work experience in the field.
Unless they specify, I would list whatever GPA makes you look better. Have the other GPA on hand during the interview if they bring it up and ask for it specifically. Understand that a resume or job application is just to get you an interview. Fill it out in a manner with that goal. The interview is where you seal the deal.1

I think its importance depends on the job. If it's an entry level position at a store or restaurant or something, I don't think it's a big deal. If they need people working there, theyll call you in for an interview and judge you on that.
If you have past job experience, that will also play a much bigger role in determining whether they'd consider you or not. You don't need it, but it would make your GPA less important.1
