The Aruba Tourism Authority is looking for a sunny personality to take on what it has called “the easiest job in the world”: One Happy Island’s new meteorologist. It’s the ultimate entry-level position, requiring no prior experience and next to no effort as you soak up the delights of this sunny Dutch Caribbean destination (well, for a glorious week, at least).
With year-round clear skies, tropical trade winds, and plenty of sunshine, Aruba’s weather forecast for any given day doesn’t require much weather expertise. The tourism authority explained that Aruba enjoys more sunny days each year than any other island in the Caribbean, and that’s saying something.
