Hi Fishes. I am new to consulting (1YOE only). I am interviewing with multiple firms, looking out for best opportunity. I wanted to ask if I should tell the recruiters that I am interviewing with other firms as well or not? Was confused to tell or not. And if yes, should I tell them the companies as well if they ask?

Sarcasm right? 😂

Never show/ tell your cards, simply say “I’m actively interviewing “

Try to negotiate offers by using others. And keep the negotiation of the company you reallly want to join at last.

Whether you tell them or not, they already assume that you're exploring other opportunities. You don't swipe right just one girl on tinder, right? Its better to be honest because it goes both ways. They are interviewing a lot of other candidates as well, don't they?

say you’re interviewing with others (even if you aren’t) so that if deadlines do need to be moved up, they’ll have some notice
