Default Can't Find a Job? Sue your Alma Mater!



Quote:
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.

The economy is bad I believe it's the recession's fault, not the colleges'.

I'm kind of confused whether I should go to college when I grow up or not. I want to be a basketball player first and foremost, but after that I want to be either a sports writer or a video game designer. But hereing all this crap that once you graduate you can't find a job is kinda scary.

go to university. if you are smart and show initiative, you will find a job. broadcasters and media outlets want smart, educated people. same with video game designers. if you become a sports star, university will be the best way to find a route to the pros. you just can't lose. if you go there and decide it's not for you, then fine, at least you gave it a go. but if you don't go, almost everyone that went will have a leg up on you in their careers. if you think it's hard for a university grad to find a good job, it's even harder if you don't have a degree. there are definitley those that make it without a degree, but the road is a lot harder.

also, university is a hell of a lot of fun. nowhere else are you expected to sit beside tons of smart and hot girls who are looking to talk to you and study with you, etc. your reposnsibilities are few, but your opportunities for fun and for your future are many.

i once read a line - can't remember who said it, maybe neitzsche - that said: "how can anyone be expected to decide on their profession before they even know what all the professions are?"

university can be great for that. it's a matter of the experience. you will discover a lot about yourself while you are there. the profession will work itself out afterwards.

the best thing anyone can learn at university is that you don't know as much as you think you know going into it. humble yourself, start building your intellect, and you will soon learn what you love to do.

That's just sick someone would do that. Must be very incompetent and not at ease at all. I hope she get's ruled against or else a lot of people of university will be attempting the same thing and expecting to win.
