Welder Jobs

Welder Job Overview

Welders use specialized equipment that produces a small flame and high heat to connect two pieces of metal together. The flame is so intense that workers need to wear a helmet that protects their eyes. They often work on construction sites, in factories and in other locations. Welders need to bend and contort their bodies to fit into unusual spaces. They use their tools to repair holes in metal objects and on metal surfaces, to cut through materials on construction sites and to create a strong bond between different types of metal.

Welder Job Education Requirements

Welder jobs often require a certificate that workers can obtain through a vocational training program. These programs are open to high school students, and those students will learn practical skills before working in the field. When they graduate from high school, they have the skills needed to work full-time as a Welder. These training programs are also open to older students with a high school diploma or its equivalent. They take courses on physics and other sciences before taking courses on mathematics and metallurgy. Though some employers will hire inexperienced workers and provide on-the-job training, others prefer to hire those who already know how to weld and work in the field. Many employers today also drug test Welders before granting them employment.

Welder Job Market

According to statistics, welding jobs will increase at a slower rate than the national rate of growth across all fields. While there are approximately 357,400 Welders working in the field as of 2012, there will be more than 20,000 new Welders accepting jobs by 2022. Construction jobs that will experience a higher rate of growth in the coming years include Electrician jobs and Site Safety Manager jobs.

Welder Job Salary Information

Welders report a median annual wage of $39,760 a year. The bottom 10 percent of Welders make a median wage of $29,000 a year, and the median wage among the top 10 percent is $63,000 a year. Salaries vary based on where they work and the hours they work.
