My girlfriend and I are looking to move to a state that has more welding opportunities than wichita has to offer me. We figure that moving to a state that generally has a lot of welding work will make finding a job easier, because there is nothing in Wichita. My girlfriend was telling me about TX and the BP strike but I would like the opinions of those who have been out in the field.

Thank you!

My fiance and I lived in Houston, TX for 11 months and he could not find a welding job. He had 2 jobs offered right away in Michigan.

Tennessee, more specifically Chattanooga. We are relocating out that way from AZ because of all the welding and fabrication buisnesses there.
