My third attempt was in early 2020. I had a phone screening interview, but I did not pass. Because I persevered, I reapplied for the position of Site Reliability Engineer in 2020. After four rounds of interviews and positive feedback, the role was unfortunately canceled due to the pandemic. In 2022, on my fifth attempt, I finally landed the role of Software Engineer.
