Are you Kidding Me? She has been out of college a mere three months, and to add insult to injury she has a mere “C” average? What? There are students with 3.8-4.0’s who are having trouble findind a job, and she demands preferential treatment over those whom have better grades?
LMAO….If I were a betting woman, which as of lately I am becoming one, this Trina Thompson will be lucky to find a job, oh EVER! With her fat whopping 2.7 GPA and her SUE HAPPY NATURE over an issue that is of her own undoing, I sure as heck would not hire her!
NEW YORK (CNN) — A recent college graduate is suing her alma mater for $72,000 — the full cost of her tuition and then some — because she cannot find a job.
Trina Thompson, 27, of the Bronx, graduated from New York’s Monroe College in April with a bachelor of business administration degree in information technology.
On July 24, she filed suit against the college in Bronx Supreme Court, alleging that Monroe’s “Office of Career Advancement did not help me with a full-time job placement. I am also suing them because of the stress I have been going through.”
The college responded that it offers job-search support to all its students.
In her complaint, Thompson says she seeks $70,000 in reimbursement for her tuition and $2,000 to compensate for the stress of her three-month job search.
As Thompson sees it, any reasonable employer would pounce on an applicant with her academic credentials, which include a 2.7 grade-point average and a solid attendance record. But Monroe’s career-services department has put forth insufficient effort to help her secure employment, she claims.
“They’re supposed to say, ‘I got this student, her attendance is good, her GPA is all right — can you interview this person?’ They’re not doing that,” she said.
