This from the American Welding Society features Jessi Combs, fabricator extraordinaire (and Troy Trepanier and Bryan Fuller. Oh, and Jay Leno makes a guest appearance). I’m interviewing her for our next NEW ROSIE. She is currently participating in the Baja 1000. Not sure in what capacity, but I’ll get the details soon. In the meantime, check out this video. Welding as a career is hot hot hot!
Hopefully we’ll be seeing some serious investment in infrastructure in the next few years, and the opportunities for highly skilled fabricators will only grow exponentially. (you can’t send a bridge to China for repair!)
