New Web Site Aims to Address Skilled Welder Shortage

A new site, HireWelders.com, has been launched with the purpose of giving a boost to the welding industry. According to American Welding Society (AWS) statistics, there will be a projected shortfall of skilled welders in the U.S. of more than 200,000 by the year 2010.

The new site offers worldwide information about welding jobs and welding education in an effort to develop a stronger link between the two. Created to help ease the difficulty in finding qualified welders, the site promises to offer those seeking welders, welding jobs, welding education, or welding students a single place to find what they need.

"With the shortage of skilled welders, the welding community needs a site like this to bring everyone together," said Shane Turner, site developer and hobby welder.

To give employers an opportunity to try it out risk free, the site will be offering free 60-day job postings to employers for a limited time.

In addition, the site offers a free venue for educators to share information about their programs as well as an interactive map where visitors can find welding programs around the world. Welding educators are invited to submit information regarding their school including program descriptions, courses offered, photos, videos, and more to the site.
