This doesn't really have anything to do with R.

You'll probably need to inquire on a local career list.

Most large firms can hire from top universities, and can choose students 
with precisely the course list and GPS's that they want.  Smaller firms 
may be less picky, but low GPA will almost certainly make people 
unwilling to sponsor visas.
