Grades Will Only Get You In The Door [Infographic]

College is important for many reasons – it’s a time of self-discovery for many people, as well as most young adults’ first time away from home. It’s more than just job training, but it’s also not the only thing you should be doing to train for your job.

A college degree just won’t get you where you need to be all by itself. Many of the skills you need to succeed in a career are not taught in school, leaving a lot of slack for most recent grads to pick up once they graduate.

Soft skills and social skills are often just as important to potential employers as the letters on your degree. Many of the factors that interviewers use to determine whether to hire you have nothing to do with your degree or your GPA.
