you could always try casting on one more stitch than you need, so that on the first stitch of the join, you actually knit together the first stitch and last stitches that were cast on...

Now that you mention that...I think that's what I did last time when I knit in the round.

Like a bind-off except you DON'T let the stitch drop that you're passing over. You put it onto the left needle.

Something that always works for me is to knit the first 2 (or 3) stitches with the working yarn and the tail end of the cast on row held together. It makes a nice tight join... after 2 or 3 stitches, justdrop the tail and keep working with the working yarn... when you get back to the beginning of the round, don't forgetthat the first 2 or 3 stitches were done with a double thread, so you don't accidently add some stitches.

....then you just knit as regularly into that stitch you just moved to the left needle?

Thanks, K.

I have worked in the round with my circs, and it did turn out fine (just tugging the first two stitches tight), but I'm always open to new methods. :D

Yeah, I learned how to do that circular join on my socks and have always used it since.

It's called TRADING PLACES in the Stitch n'Bitch book. You're putting the first stitch on the left needle over on the right needle and then the first one on the right the original first stich which is now one in, over on the left. as stated already! (sorry to be redundant, but the name helps I think...Trading Places...lets you visualize it completely)

It always works for me and it's nice and tight and smooth.
