I’d like a million Euros please

I’ve just applied for a job. Nothing exciting about that, it’s the 4th job I’ve applied for in the past 8 days. But… this one asked me to provide my desired salary. How am I supoposed to know what to ask for? I mean, too little and I’ll be selling myself short. But then again, too much and my application will be binned before they even bother to open the attachments. Do you get asked this kind of question in all countries or is it just a German thing?

Never mind. It is done now, I have sent it and I can only hope what I asked for was reasonable. Oh, and that they don’t invite for me an interview between 17th-22nd June…
