How many interviews did you go on before getting an offer? I have interviewed with 4 companies since October and was passed up on all of them. The interviews seem to go well and the people I speak are generally positive at the end that there will be follow up. I usually make it 2-3 rounds before being rejected. This is killing me...

Any advice for technical interview @ Guidehouse
A v20 firm has put me through 3 rounds of interviews with about 12 people in the group. The main partner wants to talk to me a 3rd time now and my recruiter tells me the interview is over and now it’s just discussion, what’s it going to take for me to make the move. I have a few concerns that I wouldn’t raise on an interview (such as, I’m 7 years experienced in x y z but this firm does a b c, which is similar to x y z, but still not the same). I’d learn fast but also nervous. Do I bring this up?
