Hi Vianna! Welding is a great career path to get into. It gives you the opportunity to expand your creativity and the starting pay is pretty decent. I have not worked as a welder before but my father is a welder and I have recruit many welders. Some of the problems that I have heard from welders is learning different types of welding because there are so many types. They have also told me that you need to understand and know what type of welding you need to do to complete a project. This also ties in with knowledge knowing your math and measuring skills as many projects that you create involves with precise measurements and the quality of your work. Other problems that I've heard is being too hot in the work environment. I guess this all has to do with where you live. For example, if you live in California and you're welding, it is obvious you are going to be hot and sweaty when you're welding.
Depending on which company you work for, you may need to go to school for welding. This can take anywhere between 1-3 years depending on which college you attend. There are some companies would take anyone who is interested in welding too but those are harder to find. I hope this helps!
