    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. :-)

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

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