Ask for feedback from the recruiter about why the companies are passing on you. If they don't know, ask them to reach out to their contact to inquire so you can know and try to improve.

Interviewing is an acquired skill. Are you using a recruiter? See if they can help you practice and point out what you can work on to get better at it. Other than that, it's all about personality & experience fit with whatever the hiring managers are looking for. Sometimes it's just not a good fit.

Yeah maybe you should just stay put for awhile. No interviews needed.

You need to try to make personal connections though. Anybody can go talk accounting and work and what 2 words best describe your butt, but the candidates they want will have an easy time having a half-hour improv discussion loosely based on an interview premise.

Go to youtube and perfect this skill by incorporating few good positive real examples.

It may just be bad luck stay focused and learn about the company you are interested in before the interview.

I was worse than you do not worry
