My academic grades dont meet the recruitment criteria. Do I stand a chance of getting a job offer?
It isnt impossible to get through the selection process with academic grades that dont meet a firms recruitment criteria, but it is a bit more tricky. It probably depends on which firms you are applying to. In our case, there are no filters in our online application system, so every application is read. Academics are also only one part of an application and we look at all of the information we are presented with on an application before making a decision. We, of course, take mitigating circumstances into account when reviewing applications if there are any. Without knowing anything else about you I cannot say what your chances of getting through the application process are. What I can tell you is that firms like us receive around 2,500 applications a year so the competition is extremely tough.
