Mirror: usages/ an example of 'generic you'


In the first example below, the writer employs expressions of 'generic you' twice: 'your resume' and 'presenting yourself'. And something seemingly awkward happens in the later part of the same sentence: the cost of writing 'your' resume and the cost of presenting 'yourself' is higher for some applicants than for others.

The second sentence looks better.

1. The cost of adding a credential to your resume or presenting yourself in a particular way at an interview is higher for some applicants than for others.

2. the cost of adding a credential to a resume or presenting oneself in a particular way at an interview is higher for some applicants than for others.
