this is my first Job so i still dont know what i'm doing with negotiating and junk
hopefully not too splainy
@sara if it helps, if you aren't super-hurting for a position, it's 1000% worth it to be explicit about the things that are important to you, and not to put on a traditional business facade
that will filter out most of the Bad Places you don't want to end up at
it's good to be picky if you can! it's much better if places you interview impress you, rather than the other way around--since you'll probably end up spending a lot of time in the environment you end up choosing
i hope this helps a little! interviews really can play into some nasty power dynamics, so it's super-nifty if you can invert those to find a place you won't hate after a year..!
good luck~ ^^
