I have a decent profile and resume is good if not extra ordinary. Have reviewed my profile from friends and well wishers and no red flag. I’m concerned/frustated if this just plain unlucky or some discreet HR secret cult who bail on me unprofessionally everytime? Anyone else faced/facing such issues?

Stay strong! I went through a period of time where I got 4-5 “verbal” offers in a row over a 6 month span and non of them would come through with a written offer. It was difficult to get through, but it all worked out for the better.
