For many positions, your GPA is just not the deciding factor. Schedule an appointment with the Career Center (bit.ly/BC-career) to discuss how to proceed with a GPA you don’t want to highlight. And take some comfort in the latest BC Outcomes data, which does not talk about GPA, but must cover many people with less than stellar grades: http://bit.ly/EaglesLanded18
It’s really nice that you are sensitive to your brother’s employment struggles. I suggest that you tone down your excitement (just a little) when you tell him, and follow his lead whether he would like to discuss his own job search or would just like to celebrate yours without drawing comparisons. Don’t worry too much, though — he’s your brother and will be happy for you.
You can submit an application through the links to the form here: library.bc.edu/student-employment. Best of luck – I love working here. If you don’t get hired this time, keep trying each semester.
I’m not eligible to do that (being an inanimate wall, and all), but I recommend talking to the Office of International Students and Scholars at firstname.lastname@example.org or 2-8005, as well as the Career Center (bit.ly/BC-career) for their advice. Also, try GoinGlobal H1B Plus (bit.ly/HB1GoinGlobal), a database that provides listings of American employers seeking to hire international employees in the US.
It is paid. You can tutor for one or more courses. To become a tutor for a course, you need to have gotten at least a B+, and have a recommendation from your professor. The CFLC suggests you talk to the professor about the recommendation first, and then drop in to the center to fill out a form. It’s serious work and you will need to get some training, but it seems like a very worthwhile and rewarding job.
Your major does not limit you to a particular career. A few careers require a particular major, but even with some of those you can go back and fill in necessary classes later. It’s worthwhile to explore what you can do with a philosophy major with a counselor at the Career Center (bit.ly/BC-career). You may appreciate this interactive site on where BC grads land by major: bit.ly/MajorToJob. The #1 answer may surprise you!
Totally agree. Philosophy blends well with lots of careers. Stop by BC’s Career Center and talk with a coach about what sorts of things philosophy grads do. You’ll be pleasantly surprised. http://bit.ly/CareerCtrMajors

I’m planning on hanging around here a long time. To become one of my helpers, you generally have to be a regular library employee at BC. That’s a pretty sweet job, too; my helpers say this is one of the best libraries to work at. But we are brainstorming ways to bring in more student voices to the answering side of me. So stay tuned!
I’m sorry you’re having a hard time finding work. I strongly recommend setting up a consultation the BC Career Center. Here is there information specifically directed at international students seeking work in the US: bit.ly/BCCareerIS. And congratulations on your graduation!

Adulting involves some seriously hard stuff. But shying away from the adult role doesn’t lead to as fulfilling a life as tackling it and learning that you are strong enough to succeed (with failure/learning along the way.) It’s normal to be apprehensive, but I have faith that you can meet the challenge. Help from YouTube: bit.ly/AdultingHelp
Don’t go it alone. I suggest checking in with the lovely folks at the Career Center (bit.ly/BC-career), attending some of their events and meeting with their career coaches. If you find the stress overwhelming, it might be good to meet with someone at Counseling Services (bit.ly/BC-counseling) to talk through your concerns for the future. Best wishes!
