Why does it seem impossible to get an interview? I've been applying to jobs for over a year and haven't had a single interview outside of my current company.

I've changed my resume recently to better reflect my current skills, so I hope this makes a difference.

What else can I do to can help boost my applications?

Two things that will probably increase your chances:

1. Don’t send the same resume to every position you apply for. Each position you apply for, you should tailor the resume to that position, to highlight how your recent work experience fits that position. This is work but it can help get results.

2. Don’t apply on your own; use the help of a recruiter or someone to refer you. One of the jobs I got recently I connected with someone on LinkedIn who worked there and ended up getting that job. If you’d like a referral to CohnReznick btw, DM me and we’ll talk. Our services are mainly tax, audit, and consulting, but it’s a large organization and we have back office positions as well that you might be a fit for.

I strongly recommend reaching out to recruiters and going through them if you have not already. Many can be hit or miss so I suggest not to rely on a single one but I recently had great success landing a new position quickly.
