Hello.

May someone check these for mistakes?

The likelihood of finding a
job (which is closely) related to a graduate's degree is more likely in bigger cities like New York, Boston and Chicago.

University or college graduates should have jobs (that are) related to their majors/field .

You could change likely to greater in the first to avoid the likelihood...likely problem.

Some degrees don't lead to an obvious job.

Thanks. What a point!
Can I substitute 'closely related' for 'closely relevant'?

In the sentence above, why do we use plural form of major 'majors' but singular form of 'field'?

There is no particular reason. I consider "major/s" or "field/s" all acceptable.
