If your weather reading skills are as accurate as Karen Smith’s from “Mean Girls,” this may just be the job for you. Aruba is looking for people to apply for the “World’s Easiest Job” and become the island’s weatherperson for a week (reporting sunny skies and light breezes for seven days straight).

With consistently warm weather and more clear days than any other island in the Caribbean, Aruba boasts an average temperature of 80 degrees year-round. If you can see yourself working as the island’s resident weatherperson, all you have to do is submit a 30-second video showing how you’d report on Aruba’s weather if you were to bag the coveted position.

The lucky “candidate” will win a seven-day, six-night stay for two at the brand-new Embassy Suites by Hilton Aruba Resort, located right by the prestigious Eagle Beach which is ranked as the second-best beach in the world by Tripadvisor. The winner will be featured across Aruba’s social media channels while they bask in the island’s pristine white beaches, crystal clear waters, and, of course, the sunny climate that they will be reporting.

To be in with a chance of becoming Aruba’s next weatherperson, record and upload your video between now through March 31. Applicants must be 18 years or older and be a resident of the U.S. or Canada. the winner being announced shortly after.

If one week isn’t long enough, consider Aruba’s “One Happy Workation” package deals, which allows visitors to stay on the island for up to 90 days, and includes discounted rates at local accommodations, activities, experiences, and excursions, giving you the ultimate work-life balance. There are no limitations or required visas other than a valid U.S. passport prior to arrival in Aruba, provided that visitors adhere to all current local COVID-19 guidelines, including mask usage and social distancing measures.
