I'll get a job this year at all(any) costs.

From the dictionary definition of "at all costs" (regardless of the price to be paid or the effort needed), it seems right but I wasn't sure if this fits here.

What I want to say is "I'll find a job this year, no matter how hard it's gonna be. (or no matter what it takes.)"

Or do I need another expression?

    "I'll get a job this year, no matter what the cost." is how I would express it if you want to use "cost". – ColleenV parted ways Dec 11 '17 at 13:17

It depends, what the sentence you're saying does make sense. You can see the definition provided by Dictionary below;

'regardless of the price to be paid or the effort needed'

However, I would alternate using a different expression as it seems too desperate or dramatic. I'd need some context, but I'd prefer saying something similar but more formal such as;

"I will find a job for myself this year, and I will try everything effectively as possible to attain this." (assuming this is for a CV.)
