I have been reading many grammarian articles on generalising statements and the debate between using plural or singular with an indefinite article. Is it always preferable to use plural? Is it less desirable to use singular with an indefinite article? Or are both equally fine?
Take these 2 examples:
A college degree is not necessary for having a good job.
A college degree is not necessary for having good jobs.
Is "good jobs" preferable over "a good job"? Or are both fine? (note that "a good job" sounds better to me, but I am hesitating because the rule seems to be that plural is always preferable)
