    currently in training in Army, looking for job afterwards

    Hello--

    I'm a little over a month away from graduating from my welding training in the Army and I'm beginning to look online for jobs/apprenticeships, etc. (I'm National Guard, not Active Duty). The school is AWS certified/accredited.

    I would prefer to work in the northern NJ or NYC area since that is where my family is, but I am open to traveling as well. (I'm single and unattached.)

    Most of the job postings I've found require at least 2-5 years of experience, which I obviously don't have.

    Would it be a good idea to seek out an apprenticeship instead of a regular job?

    I looked into welding schools in my area, but there don't seem to be any.

    Any other suggestions or information would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks!

    Ironworkers, Pipefitters. Check out Helmets to Hardhats. Some locals/trades may give you credit for your Army training.

    I was gonna say you should get credit for the school and military experience. I did when I got out. It's a great trade, I made my money over the years doing just that and managed to do well by my standards, you can too. Ohrah, Rangers out!
