My own situation is that I have been offered a position in the Middle East that I'm currently considering. This however was the only interview I've had so far.
I've had interviews with 3 different companies. The first was at the start of June, they rang back at the end of June to say I wasn't being brought forward to the second interview (didn't expect to as they seemed quite technical and I have no technical background).
I was called to an interview with company no.2 not long after hearing back from the first company (last week in June). I did well in the first set of interviews, managed to get through to the second round of interviews a few weeks later and was then told at the end of the interview that I would need to wait two more weeks for the final round with the CEO of the company.
During the two weeks (mid-July) I was called for an interview with company no.3. They did two rounds of interviews in one week. I also went for the final interview with company no.2. In the end I was offered jobs at both companies (2 and 3) but thought I could learn more from company no.3 so took that position.
It seems the interviews are very much dependant on the company you have been matched with, so you could get another interview with a different company but is it worth losing the position you have been offered? Then again EI emailed saying positions will be offered until 17th September so there is still loads of time left.
Not sure if I've helped you at all, apologises if I haven't. I've been trying to find out the dates of the course in UCD as I will be based in the UK but the woman in charge of organising is away this week
