What's the best way to tell a recruiter you're interested in the role but expect other offers to be coming in soon so it would be helpful if they would speed up the process after an initial phone screening? The role is my dream job but I'm further along with some other good companies.

Say it just the way you explained it here. If you are high on their list, they will appreciate the opportunity to accelerate their timeline while it can make a difference.

Thanks! It is always good to be straightforward, I just want to avoid coming across as arrogant if that makes sense.

Agree with above comment. You’ve explained it well and in a way that would come off as sincere (which I’m sure you are!) Remember to be courteous of course.

I’m in the same situation and was able to speed up timelines by telling recruiters that I was in final rounds with other potential employers. Pro tip: That tactic can work even if you aren’t in final stages because the recruiter has no way to verify where you are in other processes. I’m now in the tricky situation of trying to time offers so I can consider as many as possible without having to potentially revoke acceptance on an early offer when something better comes along.

Just say THAT.
