Brush up your bargaining power
You need to be very, very specific with the way you are talking, your gestures, etc. because your salary will be decided on this. You cannot be rude with the interviewer that will spoil your image and it will meager your chances to decide on a salary of your choice. Explain them, how can you be benefit the company with your skills and the amount that the company will be paying you will not go down the drain.
Don’t be desperate
Desperation will make you lose the war even before you have started. The company might close the deal by giving you less than what you deserve by just observing your desperation to get the job. Excitement and desperation are okay, but keep it to yourself, don’t let others know about it.
