Why am I not getting any interviews?

Hello lovely people here at levels,fyi!

I am a software engineer based outside of the United States, trying to relocate there. 
I am actually just interested to leave the country I am based in, be it Europe or the States, but I am a citizen of the states(dual citizenship) so it seems easier.

I can't seem to be getting passed any screening, I don't know if it has to do with the fact that all my jobs were here, in Egypt, or am my resume is just not impressive? I don't know if I am allowed to share it here but I will as soon as I find out if its okay or not.

Does anybody has any specific tips as to how can I, at the very least, pass through the screening phase? I usually do my applications through linkedin.

Thank you so much!

Get a virtual USA number so that recruiters can contact you. Nobody is going to call an international number.

Mention your immigration status in your resume.

Try to have a neutral accent and practise recruiter calls.

Prepare resume to US standards (1 Page etc)

All these should help you get the foot in the door
