YES! You can still get a job so don't worry. The prestige of your school and your GPA only take you so far. In fact I haven't put my GPA on my Resume in years! I am 27 years old and employers are only concerned with the fact that I went to college and what experience I have. There are also many other ways you can tailor your resume to highlight other areas. Maybe the GPA in your major is higher? You can always just put the GPA of your major on your resume (provided you disclose) especially if you are applying to a job that is looking for someone with your major. You can always omit your GPA as well, and maybe elaborate on other qualities you have as such as your experience or what areas of your major you know very well. If you are still in school you can always take more classes or do a double major and raise your GPA. My advise to you is get experience in the field you want to go into as a career, even if you have to do it unpaid so that you have other things to offer than a simple number.

Academic success and real world success are not always linked.
Plenty of people do not get good grades but go on to do ALL kind of fantastic things in the world. Poor GPA might affect your ability to apply to college or grad school, but may not affect applying for jobs. The answer is you can certainly get a job! The job market is tough now for everyone, so be patient. But good luck and I bet you have many great jobs in your future!
