    "make it"

    hi,

    "I am trying to find a job. It's been a little difficult so far but I think I am going to make it...".

    is this sentence ok?

    is "make it" the best expression in this context?

    I am looking for informal words that can also be used in formal situations.

    thanks,
    jc
