I have been applying for every possible job matching my profile, mostly, AWS SA roles. I have experience in app design, IoT, containerization, cloud and DevOps. Not to brag too much but I find myself suitable for the roles, but I never was invited for an interview even. May be the AI doesn’t find the relevant words in my Resume. Any advice will be helpful

    Start with the TAM role, it's a great way to get your foot in the door @ AWS.

      Overall, it's a great role, some of it really depends on what team and customers you land with. If you don't have a lot of architecture experience with AWS, it's a great way to learn all the skills to get to SA. There's a lot of TAM -> SA departures. Very common career path in AWS.

      Is TAM more an entry level role?

    Did you reach out to any sourcers/recruiters on LinkedIn? This seems to be the best approach.

      I have been looking for them, most of them are tech recruiters though, so having a hard time finding them. Instead now I am using my network to see if I can find folks internally who could push for me. But yea the traditional route is definitely not working.

      I'm connected to a few recruiters on Linkedin and reached out to one the other day for an SA role and I have a call with a recruiter this week.

      This is how I typically go about it now as just submitting a resume online for the most part doesn't really work for us - even though you and I likely have really solid resumes.

    AWS is challenging to get into unfortunately. I have had the same thing but even worse, though on the business side. I met the job requirements (including preferred) and had direct experience working on literally the same project from the agency side, but didn't even get a phone screen. Super annoying.

    I am facing a similar challenge in other product groups too - business roles in video, prime, intl expansion. I have all of their even preferred qualifications but it seems the applications are getting lost in the pool. 😕
