  1. I usually give them the figure I was making in my previous job and then provide reasons for why I think it should be somewhat increased. Such as more work experience, working far afield, etc.

  2. Its always good to be familiar with the average salaries for your program and level. If you think you have a particular skill set that makes you a top candidate for the job you could suggest that you expect above average salary.
