Also, welding skills are universal; it’s relatively easy to practice your trade in a different state if you decide to move for any reason. The biggest employers of welders are the construction and manufacturing sectors, followed by electric and gas utilities.

There are currently about 4540 welding jobs in Arkansas. The BLS expects the number of available welding jobs to increase to about 4850 by 2024.

There are always jobs available for welders in Arkansas, and growth in the need is growing steadily, if not spectacularly. While wages rank toward the bottom of the list compared to the rest of the country, this also needs to be weighed against the cost of living. So if you’re looking to make a living as a welder in Arkansas, we wish you the best of luck!
