I have been applying for Character/General Modeling Artist job postings for the last six months. The only successes I had were from Taiwanese studios. However, due to visa restrictions, they can't offer me a job. As for applications to Western companies(mostly American), I have only received rejection latters and haven't even been offered an interview yet. So, I was hoping I can get some advice.
Here is my portfolio. https://www.artstation.com/mchung0218
Do I have too few pieces? Are the models not good enough? Please let me know if there's something that's providing me from getting interviews.
Some potential non-portfolio issues that might be providing me from getting interviews that I can think of.
1. Something is wrong with my resume. Resume .pdf
(Hopefully there are no spelling mistakes.)
2. I have been using my current location in Taiwan as my address, so the companies think that I need a visa to work in America. So I should use the addresses of my relatives' in America to apply.
3. Covid is still hurting the job market? Fully recovered job markets would have better chances of me finding a suitable position.
Please help me identified the issue that's preventing me from getting interviews. I am continuing to work on a new portfolio piece to better myself, however, I feel like I am working in the dark and don't know if it's getting me closer to a job. So, any advice would be much appreciated!
