Default Cant match

I am an IMG graduated 2002
I got bad scores and one attempt in step 1
step 1 196
step 2 190
step 3 197

I applied several times to residency and i couldn't get any interviews
I gave up on the USMLE and i Finished MRCP exams . After finishing the MRCP i got an opportunity to do one year of no accredited fellowship year in a very reputable hospital in the US .

So now i have the USMLE , MRCP , 1 year of USCE and LOR from US doctor
I tried to apply again this year and i couldn't even get any interviews

I don't know how can i proceed from this point . Any advice how can i get into residency ? shall i forget all about it ?

When did you take your steps? I think you can retake them after a period of 7 years. I'd say try to get some contacts!
