A welder joins metal together through the use of intense heat and gas. Welders work on all types of industrial, manufacturing, and construction applications. Some even work underwater to repair oil rig foundations, ship hulls, and other types of subaquatic structures. A career in welding provides many opportunities for upskilling to learn the latest technology and specialize in specific machinery. Due to the almost universal need for their skills, welders are in high demand worldwide.
