A jobless graduate has sued her former college for the more than £40,000 she paid in tuition fees after she failed to find work.
Trina Thompson, 27, claims Monroe College in New York did not do enough to help her find employment.
She is seeking to recover the £42,000 she spent on getting her degree from the college in the Bronx.
Court papers showed that Miss Thompson claimed the college's career centre did not provide her with the right advice or tips on available jobs.
"They have not tried hard enough to help me," she wrote about the college in her lawsuit filed at the Bronx Supreme Court.
Her mother, Carol, said her daughter was "very angry at her situation" having "put all her faith" in her college.
Miss Thompson graduated with a bachelor's degree in information technology in April but has been unable to find work.
She claims she was sent three emails from the college with little job advice.
"I need a full-time job placement and that's what they said they were going to help me with and they didn't," said Miss Thompson.
"The IT career counsellor sent me about three emails saying 'oh I have this job you should apply.' That's it."
A spokesman for the university rejected the claim.
Gary Axelbank, a spokesman for Monroe College, said the lawsuit was completely without merit because the college does assist its graduates in finding employment.
