In a job interview, one thing to remember is that they have already decided how much they're willing to pay...but they're probably low-balling you. By respectfully asking for more, they'll see that you also know what you want, and that will let them know that you mean business. If you really feel that hte job is worth more money, then tell them in a tactful but self-assured way. Something like, "Well, after speaking with you about the requirements and expectations of this position, I was actually thinking a little closer to *blank money*" Then just see what they say or how they react. If they can't do more than they offered, but you really feel that you're worth more, then forget about it. You don't want to work there anyway.
