I interviewed with a company last year and got an offer, but after some deliberation I declined it because the offered salary was just too low (36% of what I was making at the time - granted, as the company was in a different country, I went in expecting an offer lower than my salary - around 60% to equate the cost of living difference). I had tried negotiating that salary, but they didn't budge at all.
This is a company that I admire and would like to work at, but I just cannot take the risk of moving to a different country for a pay cut that leaves me at an entry level salary.
A year and some months later, someone from the company emailed me again asking if I'd be up for another interview process with them, whilst being apologetic that their offer last year didn't meet my expectations (just a culture difference - the email's in a different language). I assume they would budget a more enticing salary this time, but given how low the last offer was, I am hesitant to believe it would be within my target range.
In this case, should I be straightforward about my target salary? Are there any other questions I should ask? Anything I should be aware of? I would hate to waste my time and their time if I'm going to just end up declining an offer again.
