An Offer We’re Unlikely to See in the States

From The Chronicle:

The University of Regina, in Saskatchewan, has so much confidence in its graduates that it’s giving them a job guarantee with their degrees. According to a news release issued today, the university promises students who complete the new UR Guarantee program’s requirements that they will get a “a great job within six months of graduation” or they can return to the university for an additional 30 hours of free credit-bearing courses.

One can’t help but wonder how “great” is defined in the fine print.
