My name is Doug Hall, 35, I am currently in my second semester of welding at frontrange community college. I plan on getting the associate degree in welding in the hopes it will make me more employable. I am taking MIG, TIG, and SMAW, Oxy welding/cutting, and possibly down the road Pipe.
I need some direction on where to get decent paying jobs locally or abroad. Which field is the best to get into? Which jobs you can actually enjoy. Should I go union down in Denver with Pipefitters or boiler makers? I have always wanted to move to Washington State or Oregon, Is there any ship building that goes on that way, or any other field I am not even aware of up that way. What about a Rookie making big money overseas/ offshore?
What websites are the best to learn about what is out there and to network and connect with others?
I thank anyone in advance for sharing any knowlege with me, or even sending me in the right direction....
