Is your college GPA reflective of your potential?

24 Answers

If you had a bad GPA, say no--find examples of where you excelled or how you adjusted. If you had a great GPA, say no--its just a silly number that is hugely inflated anyway. Point out things independent of your GPA that you're proud of and think better represent you potential . Less

Hardly. A GPA is based on what you have achieved rather than on what you could achieve. I'm not saying the two are unrelated, but a GPA could also reflect the ability to work hard or to be a smooth talker. Three people might get the same GPA, while one is working hard as hell, the other is average but compensated with good social skills and talks his way out of everything and the third one is plain lazy but smart by nature. The potential of the three would be different in real life than in college. Less

Not in the least. It reflects your ability at that time and place to attain scores in chosen subjects. Less

Kymeta

VERY basic. More conversational than structured questioning. I was asked by multiple people, "What is your biggest accomplishment?" Another popular question, "Why do you think you're a good fit?"

I interviewed for a Control System Engineering position a few years ago. I am an expert in pointing and tracking control systems in Aerospace. The interview was a complete waste of time. I spent about a week to prepare a graphical presentation on my skills in designing advanced military pointing and tracking systems. The Kymeta staff had no insightful questions and really did not care about what I could do for them to build a superior product. It was as though the need had gone a way. The questions that were answered in the structured interview by one individual was meaningless. By the end of the interview the principal engineer in charge of my interview waltzed in and said let's wrap it up. I was disappointed that I was not allowed to show my skills and background in a way that would really benefit the. In the end, I told them they were going to be a failure due to the vibration environment and they were ignorant regarding solving end to end systems design. It was the worst interview I ever had and was upset I had wasted my time. Initially, I drove around the parking lot to see how many costly vehicles there were. There were none. I knew going in that they must pay poorly as nobody is showing that they are doing well by having fancy cars. I would never work for them. If you look on LinkedIn, you will find they have had many employees in the past that were let go. If you are young and straight out of school, it might be a good place to do advanced work. For a senior engineer, I did not trust their systems approach and did not want to get blamed for the team doing a poor job. Old guys want to avoid this and manage the risk in doing any job as a contractor, consultant or an employee. It is too bad I could not help them. Maybe if I had talked to the CEO o Kymeta directly, I could have had the influence that I wanted to have. In any event, be very careful signing up to work for Kymeta. Less

But if the antenna is meant to be steered electronically, why the gimbal?

I am done discussing my Kymeta interview experience.

If we undertake a campaign to contact our 30 day overdue group of customers, what is our overall probability of success given the following probabilities: 50% chance of having their e-mail on file 20% chance of a customer paying their bill without us contacting them 30% chance of a customer reading the e-mail we send them 30% chance of a customer making a payment if they read the e-mail etc.

Use a decision tree.

^That method won't work because it's possible that there are those on the email list that would respond without an email, so there would be some overlap, which means you can't just add the two together. Easiest way to approach it would be to draw some sort of Venn Diagram Less

this is likely an applied probability question: My answer is to apply total probability formula here. Less

What is the lowest salary you would be willing to take for this role?

4 Answers

The last bonus never happened. The one before that was more like a 1% bonus. Even raises never happen like they claim. You dodged a bullet by not letting yourself get lowballed. Less

Are you kidding me?

You're not taking into consideration the generous bonuses they (never) give out, though! Less

My experience. And I talk too much

I interviewed it was great I was told if passed drug test and background check I would have 3 to 11 shift. I came back passed my drug screening test. Was then advised I would receive email with request to ok my background check. I waited 1 week then 2 weeks then 3 weeks no email. I notified my interviewers and was told I just have to wait and here. Waited few more days then called back asked what I could do WAIT. I bvb called company was given extension that did not work and I cou and I could not reach anyone. Very disappointed I think I could have been a real asset to the company.) Less

Still open :), pathetic recruiting team and the hiring manager.

Not sure why I'd go back into strategy after so many years for a Sr. Director role when I work above the Director level. Do you have anything with P&L responsibility given my P&L management experience? Less

Derek the recruiter on this should be fired. So should the hiring manager-they are just hoarding resumes and getting free consulting. Less
