All employers look for several things: 1) professionalism (hard work) 2) personality (works well with others) 3) skill (has the ability to do the job or learn the job) 4) motivation and drive to continue to learn and improve.

Jeffrey’s Answer

Show up on time prepared to work. Volunteer to take on new assignments. Ask questions if you don't know the answer. Be dependable.

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.
