Practice is the best way to prepare for a welding career, and makerspaces are great places to learn skills necessary to be admitted to apprenticeship programs. Participants in makerspaces benefit from classes, as well as advice from other participants in a friendly, sharing environment while independently working on their own projects. Through this edifying resource, readers will learn about the breadth of welding careers options, as well as how to get started in the field, where to get additional experience, and how to find welding jobs. They'll also get job outlook and other information from the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
