Really, how often do your welding certificates come in handy?
My name is Anahi, I am 18 years old with 4 (highschool) years of welding experience. I am currently working on getting my certificates, as a girl, I wonder if it is viewed differently by employers and if getting my certificates is really the best move I should be doing to increase my job opportunity. #welding #career #certificates #oilfield
It's a good move, but consider them as "walking papers." It shows you have enough skill to at least safely complete work and know how to operate equipment. Will employers who see it immediately consider you a highly skilled welder? Probably not, but it's still a good thing to grab. As you get more experience you might consider doing less with those, "walking papers."
