Unable to Find a Job in Psychology, Lady Asks University if She Could Return Degree For Refund

This month, many thousands of coeds are graduating from college in the hopes that their $40,000+ degree will land them a job in their chosen field -- or any decent-paying. Since graduating from University of Massachusetts at Lowell in 2010 with a BA in psychology and $25,000 in student loan debt, Haley Colvertino say she's been unable to find a job in that field and has asked the college to return her degree for a refund. In a letter to the college's chancellor, the 24-year-old, who works part-time at the front desk at a gym, wrote: “I am struggling to pay off my student loans and would like to return my degree." She says was being facetious -- but not really. She says she has been on hundreds of interviews and turned away from a series of low-level jobs because her college degree and neophyte job history have rendered her overqualified. The university offers graduates lifetime career counseling and the Assistant Dean of Career Development says: “We tell all students: If your resume isn’t getting you interviews, you need to look at you resume. If your interviews aren’t getting you offers you need to look at your interview skills." BLOOP! BLOOP! BLOOP!
