    Depends... what are you applying to... and do they ask for your gpa?

    Well... since most jobs ask for a gpa, you might as well put it on. Depending on what job you're applying for a 3.0 might look good or bad... just depends. So jobs don't even care even though they ask.
    Good luck job hunting :)

    I wouldn't put it. Most jobs I've interviewed for don't ask for GPA.

    dont put a 3.0 gpa on your CV. it will look bad. even if the job requires it, you can always give it to them later. you dont want to give someone who would have potentially hired you a reason NOT to hire you. good luck! :)

    Hmm... but if they ask for it and he doesn't give it... they might imagine it to be a lot worse... like a 2.5 or something.

    I say, if they ask for it give... if they don't then don't.

    don't put a 3.0 gpa on your c.v.
    you don't need a gpa for a c.v. anyways.
    unless your gpa is excellent, i'd just leave it out.
