I am looking for CURRENT statistics about welding jobs by city and state. I want to know where structural steel welders are needed the most so I can focus my job search. I have 30+ years of experience, I am considered over qualified for most welding jobs but I will take what I can get in this poor economy.
I'm looking for work and am getting desperate. Is it uncommon for people in construction to be scared of heights? I mean I can deal in certain situations but I HATE ladders, being on the edge of roofs, etc. if I get the job I'm not gonna say anything about being scared of heights, but will there be anyway around he issue?
So my question is how do I get a job in the Alberta oil fields ? I currently live in Ontario and I'm not sure whats the best way to apply for a job there.
I could not get a job except flipping burgers,the economy was bad.My mom says all it takes to get
a job is a HS diploma and she did not want me to continue my education because of LD. I thought
2 years at this restaurant job,showing up on time,
never missing work etc I could move on to something else.I was told jobs lead to jobs regardless of what you do.By the way I only had
a certificate of completion but I never disclosed it.
I just say I graduated.Could this have been the
problem of not being able to find a job? I will
Like using an Agency, than taking a course for say something like Pipe Fitter. Than getting the passport, etc. Now would you get the medical BEFORE you even know if you got the job? Would the agency have you get everything done (make you pay for it out of pocket), put you on a wait list, than never call you for months? This is what happened to someone I know and now another person is about to do the same thing. It's quite costly and these people dont even know if they have jobs for sure. What is the correct procedure?
Carpentry, plumbing, electricians? Been thinking about going into the trades. I enjoy physical work (it's not my passion/dream, if I pursued my dream I know it would never become a reality) but at least I like it. I'm just wondering what the highest paying job is and if I would make enough to support a wife and maybe 2-3 kids and ensure they live comfortably. Thank's.
Its a helpers job working on an ethanol plant. I have a tool belt and basic hand tools (pliers, wrenches, etc.) but does anyone know exactly what I'll need?
I am thinking about taking a job with the local 798 pipeliners. I am applying to be a welder helper. The local 798 is based out of tulsa, Ok. The job requires travel and long periods away from home.
My brother will be going to college next year, we want to move to Toronto, Ontario. We like big cities, and cold weather, Toronto is a awesome city, and the schools and job market is great.
I went on to some of the canadian visa and immigration websites and found it hard to understand. We have never been out of the US, and we don't even have passports. I know we will have to get passports, and visas. What visas will we need to get, and how much does permanent residency cost? (or citizenship)
Any immigration suggestions?
I have been at my job for one year now. My husband has been at his for about 6 months. We have been at other jobs for the past three years, so we do have W2's for three years. We are looking to buy a home and will be using the help of first-time homebuying programs for down-payment and closing costs. Do I qualify with just one year of employment? Are there any programs to help? We live in MN. Thanks.
I am really down about my job. I have been told how impressive my performance is and felt good about the work I was doing. I work with a partner on some tasks and as she is new I have helped her out alot. I just found out that she is being nominated for an award. I have been striving for this honour all year. I was not nominaed. I feel resentful of all the help I have given her and now question my abilities at my job. I have worked many years to get my degree and work at least 30 overtime hours a week. I put all I have into my work and now I am questioning all of it. What can I do to not feel so down about my job and try not to let her award bother me? I was almost in tears today when I found out.
My overtime is just the nature of my job. I am a first year teacher and it comes with the territory. I chose to create the best learning experience for my students and it takes time. (We are paid salary so no ot pay)
I have a car and a low paying job.
I'm getting ready to joint the navy and I'm looking through different jobs and I'm interested in HT. I want to get into underwater welding and I wanna know if it's possible to get into that. Thanks

I have a STRONG need for Shipfitters.AND I need pipefitters, electricians, welders (of all types) millwrights, shipwrights, boilermakers, shet metal mechanics. I have a bunch of positions open and I know there are tons of people who need jobs out there. I've posted ads locally and I have a lot of people who have come from far and wide to work, but it seems like the more people I provide the more workers we need. Any suggestions? I'm afraid people are going to start canceling their orders if I dont get some more workers. Can you give me a little help PLEASE? Oh and anyone have a good definition for Orbital WELDER? I dont know how to desribe it because this is the first time I have needed one.
I'm a member of a pipefitters union as a late year apprentice. I also have a commercial drivers license.
The union has fallen on hard times and I a lucky to work for half a year. I've been thinking of leaving it. I have a Class A CDL, but I have little experience driving tractor trailers, and I am scared of the prospect of trying again. I suck at double-clutching.
So what should I do? Time is running out and unemployment insurance benefits don't last forever.
Hello, I have been a Union 1st year plumbing apprentice for about 3 months when work slowed down and I got laid off. Unemployment is not as much as it should be. How long do union apprentices (Plumber, pipefitter, electricians) stay out of work?
