Hopefully everything went well and the company is ready to extend you an offer.

For the most part, it will have been determined by this point what an acceptable offer will be.  Often times an offer is made over the telephone.  If the offer does not include everything you need, do not react negatively.  Let the company know that you would like some time to consider their offer.  Some time does not mean a week.  Let them know you will have an answer for them the following morning.  It is at this point in the interview process where a recruiter becomes very effective.  Let the recruiter know what additional needs you have.  These needs can then be relayed to the company.  If you are not using a recruiter let the company know what you need.  There is usually room to maneuver an offer into an acceptable one.

If the offer is acceptable, don't play games.  Accept it!  From that point you will be able to formulate a plan to begin working with the company.  One thing you do need to do is thank them.  This may seem a bit overzealous, but it will serve you well to write thank you letters to the people who had a direct part in hiring you.  This will not be forgotten later.

Now that you have accepted an offer the hard part begins, which is Resignation from your current position.
