Is the "I didn't forward a report I did not receive and never had previously received" one trolling? If so I give an A, much better than this one

Even though you are a career changer/have work experience, for entry-level jobs people will be looking for your GPA. Some systems/HR may auto decline if you leave off GPA.

Wut?

The amount of people getting laid off right now is huge, so if you're getting laid off anyway, this is the time for it to happen without anyone batting an eyelash.
