Help Help Indian medical graduate get into residency?

Hi, my story is a little complicated. I'm Indian but I studied medicine and graduated in Ireland in 2013. Then I haven't managed to get internship anywhere so I'm back in India now planning on doing the USMLE exams and get into US residency. I haven't done any clinical electives in USA neither have I done any proper research so my CV is pretty crap.

I'm very unfamiliar with how doctors get into US residency so I'ld appreciate any help and guidance here. Do I have to do my internship in India before I can apply for clinical electives? Can I still apply for clinical electives as I've graduated from Ireland but I haven't yet completed any internship or anything? I've heard of people talking about doing electives while doing internship? how can this be done? Also would it be advisable for me to do Step 1 first and then do internship or do internship first and then do the Steps? Sorry I'm really clueless, which is why I'm here! Any help will be highly appreciated!!
