Which LLM specialization is best for my second LLM?


Kitten25
Hello everyone, I hope someone answers me to help me get out of this mess I am experiencing right now in my head.
I am now 27 years old and I got an LLM degree in Commercial and Corporate Law from Queen Mary University in 2016. Unfortunately, I chose to go back to my coutry ( Greece) to get a job, instead of looking for jobs in London, when I had the chance and now it feels like the most stupid decision I have ever made. Today, 2,5 years since my LLM, my cv is still very poor and it consists mainly of my Bachelor (with a very good grade) in Greece, my LLM (distinction grade in the dissertation field) and my job. I did nothing in the midtime (2016-2018), because I got pretty absorbed in my work (which was nothing special, to be honest, or cv-fancy). Now I am 27 years old, with two years of traineeship and only a few months of membership to my National Bar Association. I strongly feel that if I ever apply to a company in Europe, they won't even bother to check further my application, because it is extremely poor and shows lack of motivation, as I only have an LLM in the field of non-basic skills. European Commission and other European bodies have rejected my application more than four times in a row and I am positive that my poor cv is to blame.
Anyway, now I want so desperately to work abroad that I am thinking of applying for a second LLM in the Netherlands or Belgium (English-taught). I am thinking of Energy/ Climate or Envrironmental Law in Groningen or other European city EXCEPT the UK, which is non-affordable for me. Or Telecommunications Law or Technology Law and my least favorite would be European Law or Transport Law. What do you think of these specializations? Do you think any of them would be a plus to my cv? And of course, I am also planning to do some legal seminars and qualifications these year in my home country so as to enhance my cv even further. What is your opinion of these specializations? Are they in demand abroad? Please somebody help me. I honestly don't care where my job will be, from Stockholm to Oslo and Malta, it honestly doesn't make a difference to me, as long as it is interesting and challenging.
Anyone?
