Question about resume (GPA)

1 post in this topic

About me:
I'm perusing a bachelors degree in mechanical engineering and currently seeking employment. Also, I paid a resume professional to do my resume (which I mention below).

Question: 
Should I record my GPA on my resume? My current standing is a 3.31(GPA). The two insights I was given are:

1. The career advisor at my school told me to include my GPA for the following reasons:
a. Most employers require at least 3.0 GPA
b. By not providing my GPA employers might assume my GPA is below the 3.0 threshold.

2. A resume professional (who guarantee's a call back within a month) informed me not to include my GPA because:
a. Chances of receiving call back are diminished for GPA lower than 3.7

I'd like to hear others advice on the matter before making a decision because both parties provide legitimate reasons.

Thank you
