How do you talk about your failures when asked in an interview? I don't want to seem like I'm BS-ing my answer but I also don't want to sabotage my chances.

Do people ask you genuinely if you've had any major failures?? Or just weaknesses. If failures I would shift into failures that happened around you/from other people on the team or on the company level and how you handled them.

I would talk about how you grew from them and found solutions. Turn the negatives into positives and show that they were nothing more than temporary setbacks.

I’m interviewing for jobs that would essentially lead to a minor career pivot. I have gotten to 4 straight final rounds (4-5 interviews and a presentation for each company) to be told I’m second choice in favor of someone with more experience. I’m losing my mind and so tired of interviewing tbh. What can I do differently, or do I just need to chill out and wait for a company to say yes?

Can someone please guide how should I enhance my profile.
I saw few sites who help with consulting profiles but they don't seem trustworthy and asking a lot of money.
