Welding Job Market in Wisconsin

Welders who keep up to date with the latest technology are in high demand with employers. Additionally, welding skills are very transferrable among employers and states. Nationwide most employers are in the construction and manufacturing sectors; however, another large employer of welders is electric and gas utilities.

 

There are currently about 14,840 welding jobs in Wisconsin. The projected number of jobs that will be available is expected to increase 4% by 2024, with about 480 job openings a year, which includes new positions as well as openings from retirement or other reasons.

This state offers ample opportunities to learn welding and a good number of jobs, although there is slow growth in the job market and wages are a little below the national average.
