Earlier this year, I wrote about Attitude, Attendance, and GPA and why most employers and schools that matter don't care.
Today, I expand on this thought by coming up with a new meaning for the GPA acronym.
With a Genuine Professional Attitude, you can walk into any door and find work wherever you go. Without it, you will end up endlessly searching for work and the right opportunity.
People who are genuine show it not necessarily with their words, but always with their actions.
People who are professional walk their talk, apologize when necessary and carry themselves with a high level of credibility.
People with the right attitude look for the opportunity in every failure and success.
What is your GPA? Have you paid attention to it lately? Think of this new GPA acronym -Genuine Professional Attitude instead of your Grade Point Average.
It doesn't matter if you have a 3.0 or 4.0 if your attitude sucks, you aren't professional or are insincere!
PS - If grade point average meant anything, it would be a field you'd need to fill in on your LinkedIn profile! (Guess what, it's not!)
