I have a job interview in a few weeks.  I haven't had one of those in a decade or so.  Any new developments in interview etiquette in the last decade?  What is the current view on salary discussions, do you wait for the employer bring it up, does the interviewee need to have a salary number in mind (will the employer ask that question), etc.  Anything else I should know about that has arisen recently?

I obviously know the basics, which have been the basics since the dawn of interviews, just wondering what the current trends are?

Totally dependent on the employer.

To be safe, I would have a salary number in mind, just in case it comes up.  But it really depends on the organization.

I would recommend not bringing it up yourself though, simply because if at all possible, you want them to make the first offer anyways, and if you bring it up, you are stepping into the obligation of saying what you are looking for, which is bad negotiating strategy. 

In general, I think salaries shouldn't be discussed (at least beyond very general terms to make sure you are somewhere close to the same page) until you are pretty close to offering the job.

Once you are labeled 'the best' you want to stay up there, and you can't do it by loafing around.

have a list of questions you genuinely want to know the answer to.  there is always that point towards the end of the interview when they ask you, "so, what questions do you have for me?".  that's your cue to take some ownership.  whenever the candidate has no questions to ask about the company, job description, protocol etc etc -- its a red flag and we move on.
