In any subject it depends on how you learn and how dedicated were you to your studies!
These days a candidate is evaluated/selected more on how much his/her concepts are clear, than the GPA.

The three steps are followed. The preliminary interview gets you to the next stage of a written test, but then a small technical presentation on a topic of your choice is the most critical aspect. That tells the panel that how good are your concepts and how clear are you about the basic essentials of your field of specialization! And that is what every employer wants. With basic sound knowledge you can be developed/trained into an effective professional.

So it all depends upon you that how you would maximize your time for your degree. At this point in time you concentrate upon your studies to be fully prepared, as above, to confidently face the interview panel. Don't waste your time and  then the Lady Luck will be on your side!

Best of Luck.
