Staffing companies such as Ameri-Force and PTS are places to look for industrial welding jobs, and job seekers must submit an application to staffing agencies to be considered for these jobs. Online job search websites such as Monster.com and Simplyhired.com display welding job openings to users. Many welding jobs advertised at online job websites are for experienced welders. New welders can find some entry-level welding job openings by narrowing the search criteria to entry-level welder.
Some staffing companies such as Ameri-Force have an online job board, and welding job prospects can browse the available openings for positions that match welding experience. Ameri-Force categorizes welding jobs by job description, state, city location and pay rate. PTS helps welders able to travel to various job sites with finding job opportunities, but candidates must submit an online application for further information. Many staffing companies post welding jobs at various job sites, and details about the positions are included in the job listing. Some employers use these same job sites to find welding job applicants.
Another way to gain access to industrial welding jobs is to apply for a welding apprenticeship through a trade union. Chances are higher of being accepted into an apprenticeship for those who have prior welding knowledge. Getting welding training at a trade school is one way to gain this knowledge but doesn't guarantee an apprenticeship.
