Demotivated – infosec

I have been working in the infosec industry for around 8 years now. I come from a background of linux and network based administration and currently working on infrastructure security side of cloud.

However for these past few months I am feeling demotivated. I see so many posts on folks getting into org like FAANG, Microsoft etc. but I never even get a call from these organisations. And even if I get a call I am not sure on whether I can clear the interview as I recently wasn’t able to crack a few interviews that I attended. So I am questioning myself everyday that do I lack somewhere in my skillset ? I approached many eminent security personalities on LinkedIn and Twitter for mentorship but didn’t even get a response.

So I am looking for some suggestions on what should I do to not lose motivation here and avoid getting into a phase where I stop improving myself.

Thank you in advance!
