Los Angeles 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.

About Working in Los Angeles, California

The Hollywood sign stands for everything glamourous and star-studded in Los Angeles. But did you know it was built in the 1920s to advertise a new neighborhood called Hollywoodland? The "land" was eventually dropped from the sign in 1949, and it became associated with nearby Paramount Pictures, Universal, and Warner Brothers. Today, downtown L.A. is the largest government hub outside of Washington D.C. and has the largest historical theater district in the U.S. But not all Los Angeles jobs are in show business. More than 700,000 health services and biomedical jobs and 190,000 aerospace jobs stoke L.A.'s economy.

If L.A. were a country, the city's economy would be bigger than those of Saudi Arabia, Switzerland, and Sweden. Los Angeles is a sprawling metropolis, engulfing five counties—Los Angeles, Riverside, Ventura, Orange, and San Bernardino. If you're looking for jobs in Los Angeles, you have a lot of choices for relocation. There are more than 80 neighborhoods in L.A. and 16 districts just in downtown. For those who want a slightly less hectic pace, you can also find jobs in L.A.'s beautiful suburbs, including Pasadena, West Covina, and Anaheim.
