    Default I did not have good offer in/from the Hotel industry.

    Hi,

    Question:
    Should I use in, from, or other prepositions?

    Sentence:
    I only had an offer for a two month contract and an offer for data entry work.
    I did not have good offer in/from the Hotel industry.

    Thanks

    Default Re: I did not have good offer in/from the Hotel industry.

    You had more than one offer, so you must use the plural "offers". Also, capitalisation of "hotel industry" is optional.
    So, you could write "I did not have good offers from the Hotel Industry", or "I had no good offers from the hotel industry", or "I did not have any good offers from the hotel industry".
    I'm not a teacher of English, but I have spoken it for (almost) all of my life....
