HAHA. I’ve had the same experience. Why are you looking to return?

Are you looking to head back or have you already returned?

Context: I’m a mid-level associate looking to move back to Canada from NYC and I swear I’ve spent the last three months rejecting far more new offers from across the US and UK than having Toronto recruiters return my calls/emails.

In my experience, plenty of recruiters in the northeast also cover eastern Canada.

Feeling that I never land an offer from Google. I have tried many times and in my last try, I passed phone screening but recruiter ghosted me...
I am not sure what is wrong...
When I apply with referral, my resume always pass screening and shared with managers. But then no response.
When I get feedback on my resume and experience, people always mention "impressive". I feel desperate...Being in less challenging role at Amazon makes everything worse.
