Because here's the way it works. Ready?1) Headhunter gets paid for bringing heads to the firm.2) So headhunter tries to find as many heads with good-looking resumes as possible.3) Headhunter calls the head to "screen" him.4) After screening, the HH pushes your resume to the firm managers and ask them if she should schedule an interview for you.5) The managers, who are more selective than the HH since they know what they really want, look at your resume and says no.6) The HH never calls you back.In summary, you are stuck at step 5 because the managers don't like your resume. Almost right. Change Step 5 to -> Manager gets a few hundred resumes from carpet-bombing HHs and throws them all into the trash pile.
