How much do the meteorologists earn in the world and in Kenya?
In the developed world, meteorologists earn from Ksh.2,059,900/year (Ksh.171,000/Month) for new recruits up to Ksh.6,179,700/year (Ksh.514,000/Month) for experienced and managerial workforce. This figure may increase due to allowances.
In Kenya, meteorologists wages are phenomenal just as their job description because the figures are not yet in the public domain but by comparing with South Africa which is a bigger economy and with a greater wage bill than Kenya, Our assumptions are that Kenyan Meteorologists take home anything from Ksh.45,000/Month to Ksh.300,000/Month depending on the sector one works and the experience. Private sector and United Nations however pay higher than other sectors.
Who will employ you after college/varsity?
