The man approached me with promises of [well-paying jobs/a well-paying job]

Which one is correct? Thanks in advance!

Hi,

Was he talking about one job or more than one job?

Clive
If he is talking about one job, should the sentence use the singular 'promise' instead?

If he is talking about one job, should the sentence use the singular 'promise' instead? Yes, you would normally say 'a promise of a well-paying job', although I wouldn't say 'promises' would always be wrong.

I don't understand why both singular and plural work in this case. Anyway, thanks for your reply.
Hi could have made many promises about this one fabulous job.
