Welder Job Profile
Welders use special equipment to apply high heat that joins metal parts in a broad range of industrial applications. More than 100 different processes may be used in welder jobs, and employers typically look for experience in particular techniques when a welding job opens.
Manufacturing creates the most welder employment, but thousands of other welder job opportunities can be found in construction, wholesale trade, and repair and maintenance. Factories employing welders often run two or three shifts of eight to 12 hours each.
Welders must wear protective equipment to shield themselves against the hazards of the intense heat and light that are intrinsic to welding jobs.
Jobs in welding vary widely in their educational requirements. All training may be on the job for entry-level positions. Higher-level welder careers may require years of formal education in vocational or technical schools or colleges. Some welder jobs require a general welding certification or a certificate in a specialty such as robotic welding.
