I have a 2.56 gpa and am a Petroleum Engineering student. That's why I'm saying I can't get an internship. I seriously need some suggestions on what I can do. Employers want experience and I have none. On top of that, I have a bad gpa. I did the math on my cumulative gpa and I'd need a 3.7 gpa for my remaining 55 credits from now on to get a 3.0. Pretty harsh reality right there. If I try really hard, I can get B's in my classes from now on, maybe even A's and get my gpa to a 2.8. But I'm not even looking at my cumulative. It's a lost cause. I'm just focusing on now.
So what can I do this summer to put on my resume that'll help me out? Thanks. I feel like it's hopeless to get good grades now because they don't care about now. They care about overall.
