It's somewhat important. Employers also check for what grades were obtained in the relevant courses for that particular job. For example, if you want to teach math, hopefully you have good grades in math and education courses. Your GPA generally should be fine, I think.

Serious employers will want a copy of your transcripts, so I know its weighted. Keep your GPA above 3 and it won't be a problem.
