And yes, interviewers in industries just don't see regulatory and policymaking experience as being direct experience in the field.
The place I work doesn't follow the MX scale. But if I am on the lowest grade at its ceiling.

I am on a professional track, doing work relevant to what I used to do in the industry. I am sorry for being deliberately shady about the stuffs I do. I am quite determined to keep my 'identity' unguessable.

Anyway, none of these matter. What matters the most is that I am on a track of no return. My industry doesn't want me anymore and I am going to be stuck here for a long time no matter how hard I try.

I have tried everything possible. Networking, applying, sending resumes to friends, even completed a masters so that I can get back in through some mgt assoc programs. None worked. I have tried for 3 years now.

If you though this might have something to do with the way I present myself, nope. I am a toastmaster and a regular speaker at events. And I am ready to take a paycut to return to the industry. Why does it not work for me?
