Without ever having seen you in an interview situation, there is no way to answer this question.
But let’s turn it by a few degrees and look at it differently.
You are making it to the final rounds of the interview, in at least six situations. While it is depressing that you were unsuccessful in landing the job, you must be doing something right in the preliminary interviews to make it that far.
So what’s happening in the final round? Are you getting nervous? Are the interview questions too complicated for you to answer? Do you stumble in answering the questions?
Upon completion of an interview, do you debrief yourself? What went right? What went wrong?
Are there areas you could have benefitted from a ‘do over’?
Have you asked the interviewers why you were unsuccessful in getting the job. Some people will tell you to never ask that question, others will say ‘go for it!’ I guess it depends on your comfort level.
You could do something sabotaging your chances or maybe there are better candidates for the job than you.
All you can do is keep on trying. You should be learning something from every interview. At the very least you will increase your job interviewing skills and your self-confidence.
I hope you will be lucky on the next interview. Keep at it!
