I have been interviewed for the same company twice and didnt get either of the jobs, I have applied for another job and am hoping to get another interview.

I say if you like the company then keep trying!

I think your situation is different than just blind interviewing, it sounds like people there like you so I would keep going as many times as they want to to come in within reason.

I had five interviews for my current job. If you really want the job, try not to let the interview process burn you out.

And I agree that this is different than just blind interviewing. They see a particular skill set in you that they feel will be a good fit, but it sounds like they have a few people they’d like to have you meet. Annoying as it is, I think it’s pretty common.

I interviewed for the same position 3 times at my current job.

I know the process can be very frustrating. Darling Husband actually first interviewed for a job with an organization in late-September. After 3 rounds and several weeks of waiting, he found out he was the second choice and they gave the position to an internal candidate.

They did recommend him for another position, though, for which he interviewed 3 MORE times, the last of which was just a couple of weeks ago! That’s a lot of interviewing. He also had to take off of work and drive 3 hours for each meeting.

He did get the job, though, and it’s a great one! It was frustrating and exhausting to go through so many interviews, but in the end it paid off. If it’s a good company and they like you enough to recommend you for something else, I would go for it!

I just got a job at my dream company, and I interviewed for 3 different positions before I got this one.  But this university doesn’t really have a main HR department that does the hiring; the people that supervise the employee are the ones that interview. 

Basically, if you want it, go for it!  The job I’m leaving is at a major utilities company, and one of the girls here applied for every open job for over a year.  She had a bunch of interviews, and finally got hired.  Target what company you want and just apply and interview until you get a job there.  Eventually, you will.
