One student wrote:

But is it true? Do we have many chances for a good job today and is it much easier to get a good job?

I find the student's version confusing. Do we need many chances for one single job?

Maybe: Do we have a real chance for a good job?

    I'd be more afraid of two "good job"s in one, this short at that, sentence.

    I don't think this "for" fits with the rest. I don't talk about a chance for something; I talk about a chance of something.
    I thought the same. If we substitute 'for' with 'of' in the original sentence and add a verb (i.e. ..many chances of finding a good job) it sounds better, although the repetition of 'good job' should be avoided.
