Your qualifications don’t match the job description. One of the main reasons you aren’t getting invited to an interview is that the qualifications listed on your resume don’t match the qualifications listed in the job description.

Instead, try targeting your resume to each job you apply for. Although it will be more time consuming, tailoring your qualifications to match what the company is looking for will most likely up your chances at getting called in for an interview.
