even though she's dumb?
Well, maybe she's dumb in general but bright when it comes to the requirements for the job, you never know. Like personally I wouldn't say I'm the smartest person in the world but I'm good at what I'm doing, so you don't have to be smart overall in order to be smart in one particular area.
There's also the option of her having some connections or I don't know, sleeping with her boss, but I don't like to accuse people like that, without knowing them.
so having 3.1 CGPA is not bad?
well it's possible to sleep with someone.. who knows?
I don't understand the GPA system, where I live our scores are out of 100 so I am not sure about her gpa 😅
But what I know for sure based on my own experience is that companies don't care that much about GPA. They do, but it's not their number one priority.
Cus you can be the biggest nerd on this planet but still not understand what you're studying, and that's why some companies have their own interviews and own exams that are different than school or uni.
Usually the biggest determinant for getting a job is the interview. Cuz you have a chance to present yourself and show them what you can.
are all interviews require exams?
No, not all, it depends on the position.
so if I take finance position, then I have to still exams for the interview?
It depends. Most banks require an exam for all their positions, while there are companies who require them for say, positions like finance officer, financial analyst, etc, the positions that require more expertise.. but you're gonna definitely be asked questions related to finance, and maybe related to the company and its area of business as well, so be prepared for something like that.. additionally if the company is well known and getting a job there is very competitive, be prepared for an exam.
😩 how to be prepared?
If it's a big reputable company, you can search up the type of questions they ask and the types of problems they have in their exams, so you can prepare your answers, and if the exam seems difficult, you can see similar exams and see what you need to work on. Practice is key :)
somehow I don't find those questions from reputable companies in internet :(
Then you can search for more general ones, depending on the position you're applying for, because they're usually similar in different companies. So prepare to answer similar questions, see how people answer them, and also familiarize yourself with the company you're applying for, its mission and vision, if you're applying for a financial position, then pay attention to its financial statements where you can find a lot about its operations, income, returns and profits, liabilities and assets etc etc. You don't have to memorize anything, just make sure to be familiar with the type of company you wanna get into, cuz if it's a good company they definitely prefer it if you are interested in them and not just the job or the money. And usually this type of info is easy to find for big companies or corporations, you just gotta go on their website and read. And yeah.. that's all, just give it your best and good luck!
thank you for your advice :)
