  • Jobless US graduate sues college for 70,000 dollars

    NEW YORK (AFP) ? A US student who recently graduated from New York's Monroe College said Monday she had filed a complaint with the school accusing it of being responsible for her inability to find work.

    Trina Thompson, 27, who graduated with a degree in information technology in April at the school in northern Manhattan's Bronx district, asked the state supreme court to award her 70,000 dollars to reimburse the tuition costs.

    The former student said she had been unable to find employment to support herself since graduation.

    "I need full-time job placement and that's what they said they were going to help me with and they didn't," Thompson told NY1 television.

    "The IT career counselor sent me about three emails saying 'Oh, I have this job opening, you should apply for it.' That's it."

    A Monroe College spokesman said the lawsuit was "completely without merit."
