You want to be very very careful when you make claims like that.
I am now working at IBM research because I have the skillset,

In my case, grades never entered the picture - as a matter of fact,
my grade average in the Technion was probably lower than yours. Unlike
you, I spent my time in the Technion working part time, studying part

I didn't get the job because I had connections! Whatever gave you that
