Career blight

A New York woman who says she cannot find a job is suing the college where she obtained a bachelor's degree, the New York Post has reported.

Trina Thompson, 27, has filed a lawsuit against Monroe College in Bronx Supreme Court.

She is seeking to recover $70,000 (Pounds 42,000) she spent on tuition to get her information technology degree.

Monroe College spokesman Gary Axelbank said Ms Thompson's lawsuit was "completely without merit".

The ex-student, who received her degree in April, said the college's Office of Career Advancement did not provide her with the leads and career advice it had promised.
