Getting Cyber Security job after doing busniess

Hi everyone,

I am a new to this forum but my problem is a unique one (I guess) , I have been in IT industry for about 15 years , started as a network engineer in an ISP and left as a network administrator, but for the last 9 years I was working for a family owned business which is basically to sell technical gadgets online (on amazon ebay) or export them to potential buyers around the world , for last few years this business is going down very fast and I decided to return back to a job and choosing cyber security , I do have around 4 year's experience of pen testing vulnerability assessment and GRC in my family owned organization.

for the last 10 months I study hard and passed A+ NETWORK+ SECURTY+ CISSP CISA CISM CRISC certifications , I also have BS Computer engineering and MS networking degrees , and I am confident that I know my stuff but unfortunately because I have not worked for a big organization for a long time and was working for family owned business, somehow I am not getting a chance to get a job and frankly speaking there was not so much work to be done about cyber security in our organization so I myself think I lack that experience which people think I should have after having certs like CISSP CISA CISM and CRISC, I need only one chance to prove that I can do all these things because I don't get so much experience simply because I don't get a chance not because I cannot do my work and even if I cannot do something (which is impossible to know everting) I can try to get a solution from researching online or other ways.

for last 4 months I am trying to get a job in cyber security and I don't care even if I get an entry level job but the problem I am facing is that I am not getting calls for entry level jobs because they think I am overqualified and for management mid to senior level positions I do get calls but most of the employers don't want to hire me and take a chance because I don't have their level of so called experience which they expect from me after having CISSP CISA CISM AND CRISC (e.g for experience they ask me for cyber security related projects which I have done but I don't have much to tell them).

I am now frustrated and heart broken and need guidance from experience member's on this forum that what should I do in this scenario ?

thanks in advance to all who try to help me in this position
