I’ve had countless interviews at a few agencies, all with 4-5 interviews taking months at a time to continue to receive the email “we went with another candidate but everyone loved your experience and thought you’d be great”. I feel so down right now, and I keep thinking it’s me. How do you stop feeling so discouraged?

Ask the recruiter for feedback on the process (some might give you something you can work on) and stay in touch with everyone you meet. If you see something the agency or one of their clients did and it interests you or you’re impressed by it - send a note to one of the people you met. Ask questions, try to keep the line of communication open for future opportunities. It’s hard but there are jobs out there for the taking.
