Adjectives between “plain” and “good” that can be used before a noun

I want to complete the following sentence.

Thirty years ago, a person with a bachelor’s degree could get a good job after graduation. However, people living in the 21st century can only get a ____ job with a bachelor’s degree.

I want to use an adjective that is less positive than “good” in the blank. “plain” means “neither good and nor bad” I think. I want to find a word(preferably a formal one) that means “slightly good”.


“a fair job” may fit. Neither good nor bad, just satisfactory.

  • fair – (adj) adequate – MW
  • fair – moderately or tolerably good –

“a fair understanding of the work”

“They gave only a fair performance of the play”
