An agency interviews you for 3 rounds (job involves a move). Is there value in saying “I have an offer” just to get them to say yes or no, so you can finally know if you’re moving or staying?

Yeah it's tough. There are lots of factors that can hold it up. Hope it works out!

I’m def not an expert in recruiting but have moved a few times for work—from what I’ve experienced and seen, if you’re interviewing at a fairly large metro area, there could be a lot of local qualified candidates they are also looking at—that may make things much easier for the employer to hire and get started right away. They may have timing issues—to get you moved and settled and in a new job could take time they may not have. They may also be looking at relocation costs (if they are offering it). As CR1 says, you may appear uninterested or uninvested in the opportunity, depending on how you approach getting an answer/decision.

That said, I wonder how they would respond if you told them honestly what you’re trying to work through?

Depends. Sometimes it makes you look like you don't really want to work at the agency and sometimes it speeds it up. What's holding up the agency interviewing you?

Who knows. It’s only been a week since our last contact. Plus their head of talent just took a long vacation. They were nice enough to say that there’s another position they want to fill before mine. But all along, they said to keep them in the loop if I made any other decisions. I’m interested in them...but I’m also weighing apartment decisions in my current city, so it’d be nice to know if I’m heading to another coast. Again...it hasn’t been long. Just planning ahead.
