As long as you are a student GPA matters a lot. You need high GPA for further admissions. You need a good GPA for placement programs through schools and similar headhunting program. You will need to work harder to cultivate relationships with professors for good academic references. It is easier with high GPA. Many firms also look for top GPA students in top universities.
Once you are out of school GPA doesn't matter. Real world is much different. There is no replacement for good hands on experience, career growth and common sense. You may not get into a top university for higher studies or land that dream job in a top firm when you graduate. But there are plenty of well paying jobs out there and a plethora of small businesses and start ups vying for good talent. If you are a smart worker and learn the ropes quickly, you will move up the ranks.
Most important thing will be networking and building contacts.
