How do you get a good job related to finance without a high GPA?

The question says it all. I am a junior in college (small, but high caliber liberal arts school) majoring in economics. I am interested in a career in finance, and I am aiming for a junior broker/financial consultant job. I have good work experience: I've been working at a headhunting company for the last two summers and winter breaks. I've been good at the job, so they have continued to hire me there. But I want an intern at a brokerage firm next summer if possible.

The one problem (and a big one at that) is that my GPA is only around 3.0, which is not very competitive... I still have two more years, but my classes are harder, and I dont see my grades going up significantly.

What are some things that could land me a job without a competitive GPA?
How can I differentiate myself?

The key for you is to send out a lot of resumes and don't apologize for your 3.0. Somewhere out there there's someone working in human resources that graduated with a 2.5 GPA and they will be very impressed. You just have to find that person. :-)

You might also want to highlight your previous work experience, and try to get some stellar recommendations from past supervisors and professors who support you. Also, check with your career counseling center for tips.
