Shit like THIS is what’s wrong with America.
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.”
But lest ye think I’m being judgemental, let’s read further. After all, maybe the school guaranteed a job. Maybe she’s Magna Cum Laude and the top graduate.
or Maybe not.
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.
Way to put the time in there, turbo. I can’t imagine that the work ethic you displayed to bust your ass all the way up to a 2.7 gpa isn’t being fought over by executives the world over.
I wouldn’t give her a red cent back.
Except for the tuition for the class on personal responsibility. She obviously deserves a refund on that one.
*update* I couldn’t let this gem of a quote go to waste.
“They favor more toward students that got a 4.0. They help them more out with the job placement,” she said.
