Today there are more opportunities than ever in the trades industry, and women are starting to take their share as more and more women get into the field of welding. Welding is an exciting and challenging trade that offers many growth opportunities.

Many people in the welding profession start their own businesses or work as freelance welders where they can set their own hours and work the jobs they find interesting, challenging, and financially rewarding. With women seeking more opportunities to earn salaries equivalent to men, welding offers women a chance to break the glass ceiling in the welding industry.

A female welder can earn a good salary, travel, and be part of skilled trade that’s always in demand and is virtually recession-proof. Also, since most welding jobs are done in the daytime, many women find the hours more suitable and attractive for family life.
