I went to Brooks College in Long Beach, CA from 1996-1998. I graduated with an AA degree in Fashion Merchandising. I can honestly say that they sent me on only one interview after graduation. I was never hired. I went on tons of other interviews and all I ever heard was, "We need someone with experience." I decided to go back to school for my BA in Fashion Merchandising and made sure that I gained experienced through internships and retail jobs. I attended American Intercontinental University, Los Angeles from 1998-2000.
Both of these schools promised job placement and high starting salaries but I ended up working in a department store making $10.00 an hour to start. Everyone said the same thing to me when I went on interviews, "You need experience within this industry and the only way you get it is by working your way up the corporate ladder. No degree can circumvent this policy!" Had I not been young and naive, I would have researched the fashion merchandising industry thoroughly. I was falsely mislead and taken advantage of!
In the meantime, I am in debt $52,000 in student loans! I am now living in Germany, with my husband. I have continued to apply for merchandising and fashion marketing positions but have never been successful. I've even tried for marketing positions and was basically laughed at when I told them about my educational background. The only jobs I have found easy to attain are office secretary positions.
I am in serious debt and need help! What can I do to get in on this class action lawsuit against Brooks College and AIU?
