    Keep going - 6 interviews in 10 weeks suggests you're not doing too badly to be honest.

    err, 6 interviews in 10 weeks is actually pretty fantastic in the current market. Maybe you need to look at your interview technique though.

    Don't worry, you are going to get one. 6 interviews in 10 weeks is really good and it sounds like your making progress.
