Try contract jobs if you are in a hurry. You can always keep looking for a better one.

What differentiates you? What can a potential employer get by hiring you?

Not expecting you to answer these question on this forum. But the point is that your resume and your application for job should answer those questions. So it may not be a matter of not being qualified - but not being able to adequately sell the skills you have. Thus, adding more isn't going to necessarily help.

The fact that you've had experience in a DC is a great thing. Are you looking at the same type of job? Data center provider or MSPs? Or are you looking for an internal IT gig? The latter may be harder as many small/mid-sized companies may opt to look to their MSPs or vendors for anything above daily operations stuff (which you may be overqualified for).

What about a sales engineer position? Is that something you'd be interested in?

H1B doesn't impact networking jobs because those foreigners mostly sit behind keyboards and do not have hands on experience with network equipment. Majority of H1Bs are coming here for software and application jobs.

The OP needs to look at other successful resumes out there because recruiters search applicants based on resume keywords, location, and experience.

I get calls for jobs atleast once a week and sometimes more than once a day during hot months. It's always comes down to location, experience, and resume building.
