Hello my name is Edgar Salazar and i am 24 years old.
I am really looking for someone to help me out finding a welding job, in the Houston Tx area preferably...
My fiancé is due in early November, and no matter where i go they ask for at least 4 years of experience.
I just recently got out of welding school and i am certified for structure up to 1 inch or unlimited in 1g,2g,3g,and 4g,
