Fresh PhD but 30-years-old struggling to find a job in consultancy

Dennis to deleted (#0)

Hello to everybody, I'm new here!

I have obtained my PhD in Physics 3 months ago, and since then I have been looking for a position in consultancy (any area seeking quantitative brain power). It approached the job hunting as if it was a proper job, and applied for countless positions through the Web. Unfotunately I managed to get only one interview with Deloitte. There must be something wrong in the way I approach my job hunting in consultancy. I've been looking for entry level positions (and it's not so easy to find them in general) ans used different kind of CV "templates", all emphasizing my problem-solving, computing, data analysis and communication skills (seminars, conferences, tutoring, publications etc) but so far not so good! Might it be my age?...Am I to old to hope in an entry level position in any firm?

Can anybody help me understand where might be wrong, what I should focus on etc etc...maybe it's wrong to apply for big and well-known multinational firms...any help would be highly appreciated...I am desperately seeking a career change, I can't stand academia anymore, but somewhere I am making mistakes...I desperately need a piece of advice...

Thank you very much for your time and appreciation...
