Jeffrey’s Answer

We are constantly looking for young welders. Seems everyone since my generation was told they had to go to college or they were worthless. That is one of the biggest lies told to young people today. Trades are where the money is at, without the huge student loan debt.

Jeffrey recommends the following next steps:

Find a local welding school that offers a 12 week course. That will teach you most everything you need to know, and not load you up with debt like a community college program.
