Poster: it really depends.......
Subject: RE: lying when job negotiating
It kind of depends on you industry or location as to how risky this kind of thing is. In some industries you could get found out pretty easy for this stuff. In others, it should be easy.
I just accepted an offer to start at one job in a few weeks and am now trying to finish out the interviews I have lined up. If I get a better offer I will take it. If these employers ask, I will tell them I have an offer, but I haven't tried to push them. Mostly because I don't feel the job I lined up makes me look much better than I already do. If I have to, I will keep interviewing once the new job starts.
Honestly, my job search the last few months has been brutal. It's very much an employers job market. I have gone through tons of interviews, jumped through so many hoops and put up with pretty unrealistic time lines. In this environment I am kind of hesitant to play too many games. A few years ago I would have been more aggressive.
