I have an extensive resume with a great track record. But over the last 10 years, I've had no luck finding work. I submit for jobs using all the major online jobs boards. I used to attend networking meetings, but discovered early on that they are mostly populated with other out of work personnel, each person looking to promote their own goals.
Over this time period, I've been invited to interview once, maybe 3 rejection emails. But for all other applications, hundreds of them no responses.
I live in Los Angeles and have even proposed giving 10% of my monthly gross for a year to anyone who can get me a connection that leads to a decent job. By "decent" I mean, full time middle class income with benefits in the standard range. For this market, standard range is about $50 an hour. They stand to make about $1,000/month for a year for little work. Probably I should make that offer here as well.
I understand that each video editing job opening here typically gets hundreds of applicants worldwide. There's no way employers can look at them all.
But finding a steady job isn't working for me. I get some occasional work like these two: Associate Producer/Editor -- Internet "Djarum Super - Ropeswing (2017) Behind The Scenes" Yoala Creative/Bob Gordon Films. 2017
And "Clint Lilley: Director/Stunt Coordinator Reel (DGA)" 2013 http://www.imdb.com/video/demo_reel/vi2770508825/
So, what am I doing wrong? Why am I unable to find work?
