    Talking options to make a living in aruba

    i don't know why this thread was never started....especially considering we're all AA's here. so, if we were to throw everything we have in the states for a chance to live in aruba, what options do we have to make a living for ourselves? any thoughts?

    Well i could teach and certify resort staff in red cross stuff...1st aid, cpr, lgt, wsi, swim coach

    I could teach National Swimming Pool Foundation's Certified Pool Operator Course.

    Hubby.......well there are no defense contractors (patriot and aegis missile makers )there so i guess he'd be unemployed.

    If i were so rich i did not have to work, i would volunteer teaching and coaching swimming.

    Info regarding relocating/working in Aruba:

    http://www.arubachamber.com/relocation.htm

    It is difficult (but not impossible) if you are not an Aruban or Dutch citizen.

    I agree with Amy. Plus there is the additional "language" requirements most jobs have - speaking dutch, spanish, papimento and english.

    Certifications are usually dutch / arubian too.

    >>> "It is difficult (but not impossible) if you are not an Aruban or Dutch citizen.
    ---- Ditto. You could marry an Aruban and help them in their business.
    Or if you had a very special skill that is needed in Aruba.
