Yeah, but they have good bread and fries.

Sorry, I really missed something here. Why am I the anti ohai?

As others have already noted, the resume could use some fine tuning.  But I think your skill set of valuation, MC simulation, etc. would fit in well with a complex securities group at a Big 4 or other large accounting firm.  These are very technical positions with limited client interaction.

If you really need something, maybe you could teach the CFA curriculum.

Unfurtuintly , I didn’t get any interview !

The first step you should do is to obtain an interview, just to gain some experiences and to know what is in an American job interview. 

If necessary, you could hide your certificates, your degrees, your experiences,… and apply to all unrelated offers (attention, don’t apply to firms which you will apply later for interesting offers, people will recognize you :-)  ). In interviews, ask people what they think about you, in particular about your CV,… . Maybe you will have some precious advices.

When you gain enough experiences, you can apply to more related offers.

Why would you move your family to the US without a job? Did your wife get placed or something?

RIP

This bum disappeared. Maybe he was a leftover 

His life in America won’t be easy. He may begin from zero at age 40. Hope he has family with him.

But at least, he can leave Egypt, he is happier than most of his compatriots.
