    could you please available job offers

    " And could you please also tell me if you know if there are any available job offers for the upcoming year and if not if there would be a chance that there are even going to be any? "

    Is this question grammatically correct / sound natural? :

    It sounds natural as corrected. The quotation marks are not needed.

    The parts of compound sentences should be separated with commas.

    Re: could you please available job offers

    Your title is definitely not grammatically correct.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: could you please available job offers

    Thank you!

    And could you also tell me if I could put the word "also" as I wrote in the sentence below?

    "Would you please be also able to tell me if .."

    You can use "also" but not in that position in the sentence. Where else do you think you could put it?

    "Would you please also be able to tell me if..." ?

    Re: could you please available job offers

    "Would you be able to tell me?" is not the same as "Would you tell me?" or "Please tell me."

    Do you see the differences? Which is most useful?

    Re: could you please available job offers

    It is job vacancies, not job offers.

    "Would you be able to tell me?" is not the same as "Would you tell me?" or "Please tell me."
    People are always able to, but they wouldn't always do.
    I am not a teacher or a native speaker.
