A 27-year-old graduate of Monroe College in New York is suing her alma mater for the $70,000 tuition she spent in earning a bachelor’s degree because she can’t find a job.
According to today’s New York Post, Trina Thompson’s suit contends she has not been able to find a job since she got her information technology degree in April. Thompson says the school’s Office of Career Advancement hasn’t provided her with the leads and career advice it promises. Monroe College spokesman Gary Axelbank properly says the lawsuit is completely without merit.
As frustrating as the job environment is currently, this ranks as one incredibly stupid act that will net Ms. Thompson a lot of publicity, but make every future employer gun-shy about hiring her.
