I'll admit it, sometimes I a bit slow. It's finally occurred to me that interviewing for jobs is like dating an insecure man. In both cases, they're really only interested and motivated if they think someone else is also interested. So now during my interviews I mention that I have other interviews and/or people I'm talking to. This seems to be the only way to get folks to commit to anything. And really, I'm only stretching the truth a little. This also explains the "it's easier to find a job when you already have one" syndrome.
