Meteorologist

Odds of Hanging On

Since the dawn of man, people have always tried to predict the weather. Your chances of job security are pretty good, but they will be even better if you can come up with a foolproof way to never be wrong. Weather predicting, despite all of the advanced tracking devices and programs, is still an uncertain science. If it wasn't, you'd see a lot fewer suspended baseball games.
