As you know here on the CarmenElectrode.com site we’re profiling women welders.  Over on JoeWelder.com we’ll soon begin to profile businesses that utilize welding or metal fabrication.  These projects are designed to showcase the many opportunities for highly skilled welders out there.

One other initiative that I know about is the Dream It Do It Campaign over at the National Association of Manufacturers.  And also at NAM, the Cool Stuff Being Made videos are a lot of fun to watch.

Drop me a line if you know of other programs out there to encourage people to train in the welding and metal fabrication industry…..
