While my resume garners some traction, I'm not making it into the interview rounds.
Give some thought to this approach - rather than a focus on your education and experiences (i.e., accomplishments), identify your specific talents and address just how the talent demand of the sought-after positions and YOUR talents are a match. That is, step back and identify the talents necessary to fill position "X" and tout how your talents are a match.

Thanks for reaching out. I'm adding some articles that I think are worth reading:
Have a great weekend!
Have you conducted any Information Interviews with people working in the c-suite now? In order to gain some knowledge of what they do and translate that into what you wish to do will add some traction to your search process. As with any career, they maybe speaking a different language and have another set of metrics. These are the key components that a company looks at when filing positions. Depending upon the size of the company, the c-suite may be looking for Board management experience. This is tricky, you do not get experience with Boards until you are in the c-suite. Again, some Informational Interviewing may be helpful in learning what these folks are doing on a daily basis, to give you an idea of how to better approach the hiring process.

I spent a number of years as a Senior Executive in the Electric Utility business, etc. Here is my two cents:
Law School. Law School will open doors to Executive Corporate Management. I went nights. I had a demanding day time job; I was married, three kids two cars, house payments etc etc etc. It can be done. Are you up to it? If you can, go to Law School days- it is much easier. Let me know if you need some specific suggestions or more information on Law Schools.. Good Luck.
