Dallas Welding Jobs Overview
A welder is both a scientist and an artist. They take detailed, technical instructions and use their artistry to create beautiful but functional products. Welders are responsible for 70% of all manufactured products—from cars, buildings, and airplanes to small kitchen appliances. But the U.S. is running short of welders, with industry analysts predicting 400,000 vacant welding jobs that need to be filled over the next few years. Luckily, you can start training to be a welder in a high school vocational-education program and go to work immediately after graduation.
Welders use precision and expert skills to weld various metals and alloys, install piping and equipment, and work with engineers on construction and manufacturing projects. As a welder, you'll also read blueprints, sketches, or specifications; calculate the dimensions of parts; and inspect structures or materials before welding.
