I'm a Software Developer and I frequently (~every 2 months) get apprached to interview for a position. Sometimes by a company directly, sometimes by a recuriter. In general I'm not apposed to these interviews. Currently I'm contracted through a recruting firm.
Most offers to interview come with a salary range that'll DOE. What is the professonal way to handle these offers when the salary is below what I currently make so I know I won't accept a job offer if I were to get one? Granted my current position has close to no benifits (only poor insurance that I contribute to). I'd still like to build relationships with these people but I don't want to put on a show and waist their (or my) time in the process.
I'm listening to the podcast episode on declining an offer but it relates specificlay to a job offer.
