Welding is one of those industries in which there are an exceptional number of employment opportunities. In fact, there are quite a number of welding careers that go far beyond simply joining metal parts on an assembly or production line. For instance, some welding careers center around repairing aircraft, ships, and even equipment maintained in outer space, making employment opportunities with government military and defense agencies possible. Others choose welding careers that combine metalworking skills with commercial diving expertise in order to work underwater constructing or repairing bridges.
In addition to a wide variety of appealing and lucrative jobs, the demand for all types of welders is expected to increase significantly in the next decade and beyond. In fact, The American Welding Society (AWS) estimates that the number of vacant welding jobs will soon surpass the available pool of skilled welders by at least 200,000 workers in the United States alone. In an effort to meet this demand, many welding schools and training programs continue to actively recruit new students. As an added incentive, many facilities offer sign-on bonuses, tuition scholarships and reimbursement programs, and guaranteed job placement services. Many skilled individuals are involved in the design, sale, installation, and repair of heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) units. HVAC workers are essential in providing comfortable, temperature-controlled atmospheres in private residencies as well as offices, schools, hospitals, warehouses, and other large structures where people live and work. People who are interested in HVAC employment might pursue careers as engineers, fabricators, technicians, or salespeople. Depending on the nature of HVAC employment, individuals are usually required to pursue some form of higher education and complete formal training programs. Research and development departments of HVAC manufacturing plants hire skilled engineers to create, test, and build new units. Engineers use their advanced knowledge of math and physics to design systems that are efficient, cost effective, environmentally friendly, and simple to use and maintain. They commonly employ computer-aided drafting software and various other programs to help them design blueprints and perform hypothetical tests on units. Many engineers work with a team of assemblers to build and test prototypes. To obtain HVAC employment as an engineer, an individual is usually required to obtain a bachelor’s degree or higher in mechanical engineering and complete formal, on-the-job training from established professionals.
