My initial take is; it does not "matter" for this. How may inventory items will you have? Even few hundred and iterating over them, would not show up in profile.

Good point Frob about the college graduates, I missed that in my haste. Myself (and I do allot of interviews) do not take GPA into my hiring decision. I have not seen the raw numbers from their data, but it mentiones only "slight correlation". I understand that is another data point, but in mine mind is just not enough and my bigger weighting point for interviewee is if they have any personal project which they can show. That part usually drives large portion of mine decision.

"They're covered in things like "3.8 of 4.0 GPA"

You do you care about it? Google used to be very bullish on GPA, and not that recently, HR head at Google done some studies and they found NO correlation between grades/GPA and how good the employees were. There also found out that asking quiz/gotcha questions on the interviews was also no prediction of future employee and only made interviewer feel smart.

My typing speed (and I am slow) never interferes with my programming, since typing speed is not really a gating factor. I spend far more time thinking about the problem, designing some new system, or debugging in IDE.
