This occupation appeals to me in doing hand work and using high temperatures to forge metal. The welding job connects metals by severly heating the metal and pulling the two moltens together and letting them cool in a natural manner. The job outlook within 5 years is underwater welding, which is highly dangerous to the welder. The earning potential for a welder averages around 90,000$ a year. Related occupations to a normal welder is a an electric arc welder for pipelines.
