What is the growth potential in the welding career path ?
I want to know if the welding career path has growth opportunities and longevity because I want a career I can continue pursuing for a long time, And what is the usual entry-level welding pay?
Finally as stated earlier a trade is a great idea in Hawaii an apprentice $18-$25 starting , journeyman $30-$50 per hour. Hope this helps, good luck!
Starting off, you might find yourself assisting a seasoned welder while you learn the ropes. The pay for beginners is usually around $10 an hour, but don't let that discourage you. As you hone your skills and pass the welding test, you could see your hourly wage double or even triple!
Pair this with a university degree, and you might find yourself earning a six-figure salary in no time. It's a rewarding path that can lead to financial stability in a relatively short span.
