Interviewing Tips/other jobs

Question
In an interview, should I say that I am interviewing for other jobs, to somehow show that I am a "hot commodity" with other companies?

Answer
No, don't do that.  That strategy always backfires.

it is assumed that if you are looking for a new position, you are probably interviewing in general.

The employer interprets that as you are trying to rush them into a decision.
