Had a tech recruiter ask me if I was applying at other places too. I was honest and said yeah I'm actively looking. Can any recruiter elaborate why they ask this question?

It helps them gauge timelines. For example, if they know you’re in the final rounds somewhere else, they can try to quicken the interview process so you’re not forced to accept another offer while still interviewing

So they know how fast to push internally if the team is interested. Really no secret.

Thanks for clarifying everyone!

They want to know how serious you are bc it helps them gauge how much time to spend helping you. That’s my assumption.

I've just recently been hired as an assistant manager at a Canadian outlet store. It's a small company in comparison to others, but there are over 10 locations spanning western Canada and NW united states. I'm curious as to what others in a similar position are getting as salary. I was offered $42k plus bonuses at the interview, but when called back I was offered $44.5k plus bonuses. I already accepted. Did I leave money on the table here?

My firm’s policy requires a minimum tenure in current role before interviewing and switching to another internal role. I’m in interview processes with other firms for the role I want, but would prefer to do that role at my firm. Is there a way to negotiate with HR about this? I understand I’d have more leverage with a final external offer. But I worry by then I’d not have time to secure internal offer by the time the external offer deadline comes. How would you approach?
