I'm am IT manager for a smaller company. I manage all infrastructure and service desk with a staff of two. I've applied to so many companies like Facebook, LinkedIn, Google, etc for jobs I fit to ones I'm extremely over qualified just to see if I get a call. so far..... zero. only small business have given me offers. I can't even get interviewed at places like Facebook for a lead or Sr position. even with a friend referral. what do I need to do?
If you've never been a lead in a big company, don't expect to come in directly as one.
