I'm having hard work getting a Job as Marketing Manager

My story is simple,

I have a lot of background experience working with Digital Marketing, I have worked more than 6 years with clients in Venezuela like Pepsi, Doritos, KTM, Fox , Smirnoff, Absolut Vodka and many others.

I had to leave Venezuela due to the political situation and the insecurity against my family after being chased by government entities.

I learned to develop websites, make digital marketing campaigns, manage social media, became a Google Certified SEO, etc etc.

Right now I'm in Miami and can't find any work that believes my story and hires me even as a trial job. I still work as a consultant for several brand in Venezuela but nothing to big.

I'm a young guy with a right actitude, and can't find the way to grab a stable job for a few months.

any thoughts?

    Most Americans will never be able to relate to the challenges you have faced with the situation in Venezuela. Don't even mention it in an interview with someone who was born in the US. Focus on your skills and the value you can bring to the company. Maybe you are already taking this approach, I'm suggesting this in case you are not

    Leave Miami. The job market there sucks. I had to leave to find work almost 8 years ago and have been better since.

    I've seen some things man, and some stuff... I wouldn't recommend it.
    Marketo - you'll have to move to Denver though.

    Network! Go to social media club and PRSA events. Get to know established colleagues who will understand what you do and can help you out.

    I worked in Miami for 12 years. Terrible job market.

    Do you do and know paid social?

    You need to find an entry level position. Maybe a contract. Miami is not the best place for that
