I read about this story yesterday and found it only slightly funny. Then this morning I happen to read the CNN version and was laughing my ass off at this part:
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.Yeah, a 2.7 GPA and she's not getting employers beating down her door in this economy? Shock! I have to give CNN some credit here for the tongue-in-cheek factor.
"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.
