How might I be failing if my job search is 95% done on Indeed? (AskVoat)

the other 5% goes to monster, careerbuilder and dice.com but you can tell those ones aren&#039;t as good.
I&#039;ve sent out more resumes then Tony Fauci has covid-19 variants, which is to say a large amount. But I&#039;ve done it almost entirely on Indeed.
I&#039;ve even gotten to the point where I&#039;m not even sending out a real resume anymore. I send out a perfect version of myself that has large deviations from my true employment history and even with that the silence is deafening.
I&#039;m just a run-of-the-mill c# winforms asp.net mvc programmer. So I&#039;m not specialized in a certain area. I&#039;m just a general purpose programming unit. So I don&#039;t really like the idea of running down some company that I want to work for because to be honest I don&#039;t want to work for anybody. You know what I&#039;m saying it&#039;s not like they would be using some technology that I specialized in because I had a passion for it. I don&#039;t have a good answer for why do you want to work here. I just need the money and I fit the job description so I guess I&#039;ll put up with all of your office politics in order to do this work in exchange for money. So for me it makes more sense to just apply to jobs that have already been posted which is why I really only use Indeed.
But indeed isn&#039;t working at all. Pretend like I need to find a good paying job or I&#039;m going to end up homeless. What would you do if you were me?
