Not sure what to do.

Just like the title, I'm not sure what to do regarding my current job hunt. Currently getting my masters of science in finance at a well known but not target school (Nova/Vandy/georgetown tier). I decided to go for this right out of undergrad becuase I went to a super non-target, as in, looked up LinkedIn alumni working in ER/IB/HF/PE from my undergrad and a dozen or so results came up. Anyway, really went hardo with the networking due to having 0 family or friend connections and landed some interviews, and eventually 3 SuperDays for at a BB, a fintech focused firm, and a smaller boutique. This past month all 3 responded with a no. I feel like the window to break into this industry is closing and as the 2nd semester starts I really anticipated feeling secure with an offer in hand by now. Any advice? I've heard that a 2nd hiring season of all those jumping into exit opps will free up some analyst positions soon, and I'm not sure how true this is. My biggest issue is getting my food in the door. I only got offered 1st round interviews 4 times, and of those (as mentioned) 3 turned into superdays, so not entirely sure what to make of that. 

Basically if anyone can relate / has advice / or tips, they would be more than appreciated.
