So you're facing an employment conundrum that is frustrating to say the least as you look to advance. You're getting interviews which tells me that you're resume is strong (that is great news) but upon completion of the interview process you're not securing the job and we should probably figure out what's happening during that stage of the process so that your next interview results in a higher level role for you. I would suggest that you find a coach or someone in HR to assist you with mock interviews so that you're well prepared and answering the questions that showcase your skills as the right candidate for the role. It is a delicate balance not to oversell your skills so that you remain in consideration for the role. Additionally, a mentor would be helpful since one could assist you in navigating that world and help you with some connections, as well. Most importantly, stay enthusiastic and encouraged during this process. Though you're not getting the jobs yet, you're getting priceless interview practice in the meantime which is great!
