Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!
Definitely if one was good in the course he/she did in school, as an employer i would assume that the person will as well excel in their respective field of work, this is because they will be practicing what they learned in school.
Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
excellence in field of work in most cases is reflected on how well a person performed in school work. if a person failed in school it is not possible for one to demonstrate excellence in their respective jobs.
