Depressed with no interview calls

I am currently pursuing my Master's degree in CS focussing on Machine Learning. I have completed my Bachelor's in India and then worked at a startup as a Data Scientist for 2 years. Currently, I am looking for Data Science/ML internships but I am being ghosted outright. Many of my mates who don't have DS experience are getting enough calls, but I have relevant experience but still, there is no luck. I have gotten my resume reviewed multiple times from the career center at our college and many of my seniors from industry. I can't understand why I am not even being shortlisted for interviews even after having good GPA, relevant experience, studying in top 10 US universities for CS. How should I overcome this problem? I don't want this situation to repeat when I am looking for full-time positions. What can I improve on my side that makes me a good fit for the job market? I am really tensed right now and am unable to concentrate on my assignments and coursework as I am always thinking about an internship. There is just a little time left for summer and am not sure if I am going to secure an internship. Please suggest. Thanks in advance.
