Consider this expression:
If you don't make an effort for this, It is going to be very difficult
Instead of the expression "it is going be difficult", I want to elaborate what the repercussions will be:
If you don't make an effort for this, it is going like this, that even if you have a decent profile and resume, no one will consider you.
The second sounds wrong to me. Specifically, the like this that part sounds odd to me. Can anyone help with this expression and point out what the correct version is?
