    Default Coming out of Welding School

    I wonder if company's will be scared to hire me just because I will be a rookie welder fresh out of school ?

    Hopefully your school helps you find a job like my school had done.

    Ok thanks...My instructor will more than likely help me instead of the school as a whole

    If you are scared they won't hire you then they'll likely pick up on that and won't. Be honest and confident.

    Despite that the outlook for welding careers is outstanding. I would urge you to look farther along the educational track than manual processes though. Robots and computerized systmes will continue to take a lot of those jobs. You want to be the welder who can program them. :-)

    Check out this article from AWS: http://www.aws.org/w/a/research/outlook.html.

    And learn from this one how much you're worth and where you can go: http://www.bls.gov/oes/current/oes514121.htm#ind

    If you really, really, really want to just go burn rods for money and get some experience check out all the goings on in Alberta, CA. I rode through there on my bike in September on my way to Alaska. Hundreds of miles of bumper to bumper welding rigs. :-)
