A short background: I left my dream job in the UK to move to the USA for my spouses career. I assumed my multiple skills and varied experience would make it easy for me to secure another role in Minneapolis, Minnesota. It took me a year to find a new role, and that lasted 6 months and COVID impact saw me without a job again.
I have applied non stop for the roles that interest me, for the roles that excite and even for roles that is not really my passion but I believe I can grow and develop. I have had NO response from ANY recruiters other than the standard rejection email. Some of these roles is a PERFECT match for my resume - almost word for word. But still only rejection. I am really struggling to understand the employment market in the USA as on face value it does not appear to be similar to my experiences in the UK, Canada or South Africa (all countries I have lived and worked in.) I am hopeful someone on here could offer guidance, advice or a new approach for me.
