    this vs it

    Hi,
    Any difference between the following 2 sentences?




    Sentence1:
    I completed a summer job in a restaurant.
    This is the evidence that I have the ability to work with other people.


    Sentence2:
    I completed a summer job in a restaurant.
    It is the evidence that I have the ability to work with other people.






    Thanks

    Neither of them sound right to me. I would say that the first is correct grammatically, but it would sound clearer if you said 'This is the evidence to show that I have the ability...'. Even more straightforward would be:

    "I completed a summer job in a restaurant, which shows my ability to work with other people".

    Also, I'm not sure about the word 'completed' used with a job. 'I had' seems to fit more appropriately.

    Hi,

    What is the difference between the sentence you suggested and my following sentence?

    'It is the evidence to show that I have the ability...'
