Expat life style in Hawassa / Awassa

Hi All,

I did notice some general information about costs of living which is greatly appreciated. I am looking to better understand some more specific salary information.

I am ideally looking to better understand salaries in Hawassa / Awassa, I have been able to find a lot of information in relation to local salaries, but very little on expatriate salaries.

Is there a fly in - fly out culture from from Assa Ababa?

Salary is between 1200-3000 usd for an expat working at Ethiopian university.

From Addis is easy by minibus to Hawassa.

Hello dear could you add me I am interested to join and work there.
