Does it come off as arrogant when a candidate is transparent about their interviewing timeline with other agencies?

@author - that sucks / I’ve been through long recruitment processes only to come up short. Hope you’ve found a new role!

I know when I’m interviewing someone I really like to join my team, if they mention that they’re talking to other agencies, it makes me try to speed our process along. If I don’t love them, it doesn’t really have a negative effect. So I guess I’d just be open regardless!

Transparency is so helpful! If you say respectfully “I’m interviewing with a few places but am still very interested in next steps here” that is great. Don’t be surprised if they ask where you are in the process with other places just so they can move the process along for you as best they can. Sometimes the timing won’t work out, and that’s ok. Not meant to be.

Not at all, I actually appreciate the transparency. I’m not arrogant enough to think I’m the ONLY person you’re talking to!

Agree with a lot that’s been written. Demonstrating other agencies have interest also makes you more attractive in general.

Depends on context. Candor is acceptable. Conceit and deceit is not.

I'm looking to find a job like the Forward Deployed Engineer role Palantir Technologies in the UK.

I have become hooked on finding a job that involves solving the kinds of problems they presented during their interviews. Although I got to the final round my performance anxiety got the better of me (I think I wanted the job a bit too much...). I will reapply after working in a similar company.

Is it "deep tech" / "data science" or "smart enterprise" that they're doing? Any advice welcome.
