I'm a Cloud Engineer w/ 8 YoE on a company sponsored visa in UK. Trying to switch jobs and so far after 125 applications for the last 3 months - only 3 interview calls which I didn't get. 46 not considered, 49 haven't replied or job listing expired. Awaiting response from 24 and 3 interviews scheduled.

Is this a bad time to switch or is it my profile or skillset? I updated my CV, did all I could to get shortlisted but isn't helping much.

Any tips? I'm losing my confidence day by day :(

Try private cloud companies like Rackspace, or try one of the numerous cloud consulting companies since you're in a consultant role. They'll appreciate experience because you'll be able to help their customers.

Don't give up, know your worth. Everyone is moving to the cloud, everyone wants your skills.

One strategy I employ in job searching is tailoring my resume to the job description. Concretely I make sure that all the keywords show up on my resume to get through any initial screening. To help with this and help recruiters, I've added a page that lists technologies I'm familiar with along with the years of experience I have in each. It's like an attachment for your resume. I also have a small section for non-technical skills that get called out in the job description.

Also, DM me and I can refer you to a great recruiting firm in the UK specialized in cloud engineers.

Thank you for the encouragement and the resume tip. That's a good idea, I'll try implementing that.

Hello fishes! Does anyone know of any good recruiters/headhunters? Or does anyone know of any good coaches/mentors? I'm looking for any way to help accelerate the process of getting a new job... (Referrals have not helped me whatsoever in my job search so far, I have either gotten no response or automated rejections)

I'm also ok with having anyone review my resume! Any sort of advice is much appreciated! Thanks for reading.

No surprise because it was not a good interview.

I’m not confident about the system design because of the bad experience I had with the previous interviewer. What should I do?
