Are top Austrian positions reserved to Austrians? (Vienna)



I am looking for a job in international business (I am currently self-employed), I have 20 years' experience in international sales in America, Africa and Europe, I am lawyer, ex international business lecturer and speak 7 languages fluently and I am facing two types of answers when it comes to an application in Vienna:

1.- That I am overqualified

2.- No answer (mostly with higher level positions which match my profile)

In case no 2, I start to feel that it is more related to the fact that for some local companies the top positions are kept for locals. I do not need a work-permit for AT, so that plausible reason is also ruled out. Headhunters compliment my CV but nothing happens.

I will appreciate your views on this.

Best wishes to you all,
