    Applied for 2 similar firms in August. Have an interview coming up with 1, however haven't heard anything back from the other.

    I'm going to email asking whether they have started looking at applications yet or whether they are waiting unil after the deadline, just wondering whether you think I should mention the interview I have, or just leave it? as it may rub them the wrong with with it being a competitor.

    Cheers

    unless you have an offer, i wouldn't mention it

    firms know that candidates get interviews elsewhere, and they don't really care

    It's a really dangerous strategy - they'll probably just cull your application
