  1. I had been rejected 10 times in interviews. I always reevaluate but each time somethings seem to go wrong. I cannot get the right thing to crack the interviews. Being a Electrical Engineer but interested in IT also I try to sell my computer skills. They are limited but each day I am trying to learn and enhance my limitation. How can I overcome these failures? I do all the necessary evaluation but still it happens again and again.
