How is the current job market for professionals with a few years experience in Solutions Engineering/pre sales engineering roles?

I have 2-3 years experience in pre sales engineering/solutions engineering/consulting, a cloud SA cert and I’m planning to move to NYC (currently in the southeast)

I previously have interviewed with FB & Tesla out west but no luck. I have a “good” LinkedIn profile(getting about 160-180 search appearances and 100+ views in the past 3 months). Once I added NY to my “places I’m looking for opportunities” on LinkedIn I started to get hit up by 2-3x the amount of recruiters than I did when I was only looking at the Bay Area.

I’ve pretty much decided that I’ll have better luck in NYC but from any of you currently there, any advice on places to look at for the aforementioned type of roles?

I am in touch with a couple recruiters regarding potential positions (not very dependable), waiting to hear back from a Google recruiter about if the NY team is interested in my profile, and I just had a direct phone interview with a Cloud solutions company today (we’ll see how that goes). Just trying to cast as big a net as possible. All the aforementioned opportunities were from LinkedIn inmail and a random application spree.

I have very basic scripting experience/knowledge in a few languages. Currently use some cloud tech/apps in my current role but mainly solutions engineering/consulting in technology integration. I’m more of interested in Solutions Architecture with a focus on Cloud technology applications, but I know I may need more experience for that role so I’m open!

Any advice is appreciated!

    I would look into Red Points, their base is around $100K, which is way off from what I had in mind ($140K).
