    important so that

    Can one say
    A good education is important for you to find a good job.
    A good education is important in order for you to find a good job.
    A good education is important so that you can find a good job.

    ?

    Can one replace 'important' with 'good'?
    Can one replace 'important' with 'essential'?

    Many thanks.

    Re: important so that

    #1 — No. The repetition of 'good' is bad.

    #2 — No. Many people find good jobs without having a good education.
