Job Spotlight: Welder

Will you connect to your career dreams through a welding position?

Despite already having experience with several jobs, many working adults are unable to answer the age-old question: “What do you want to be when you grow up?”

Our Job Spotlight monthly blog series is designed to help with that. In this series, we review all the basics of specific job types, from salary and duties to why people do the jobs they do.


For this month’s Job Spotlight, we’re heating things up with a look at welding positions. Welders use high-temperature equipment to combine separate metal pieces into a completely new product. Different types of welders use different kinds of equipment.  With the different types of welding come different work environments and industries.
