Hello Vernon, I am an architect intern and work with people in the career. I am also a hobby welder. Their several types of welding careers. Some in manufacturing, automotive and construction.
On the construction side of welding you will face heights, carrying equipment, problem solving guiding beams into place and ensuring a clean /safe bead. You may also be working long hours to meet construction deadlines.
In general metal workers get paid very well but work very hard in extreme cold and heat at times. So don’t look at how hard something is, look for the reward. Like being apart of a huge project and building something for everyone to look at and enjoy!
