How are you getting your interviews? I can’t even get a phone screen. My resume has been reworked so many times. Feeling stuck here

I am only applying to positions which match my Skills. Interviews are far and between.

What is an efa? OP if you’ve gotten interviews at Amazon then maybe it might be your behavioral interviewing skills or perhaps communication. Let me know if I can help.

Please - I need help. My skill set is great - just unable to convert interviews to offers.

What is the difference between Principal Design Strategist & Design Strategist?

My current title is the latter and I’m interviewing for a Principal role.

The only nuance I got from the recruiter is that there is no actual designing in this role.

Is this a case of title inflation?
