Thanks Sahil! The next video is on the way once it finishes transcoding. Let me know what you think of the series as it progress.

That last time were in that situation to negotiate an offer... how'd it go? Any tips or lessons learned that you'd be comfortable sharing?

Last time my situation was happiness phase, because I was really looking forward for the job. So, as soon as job was offered over the call, all I said was "yes", and then asked the recruiter to send me the offer letter.

One thing which I always do now is, understanding the salary breakup and try to get as close to the actual number which will be credited to my account after tax/social security/health insurance/pension etc.
