I have been farming and running a wrecker for 19 yrs now. I can MIG,TIG, fab type work. I am just looking to do something diff. I have to hold off till I close on the house though. I live in Elkhart just NE of Ankeny till my divorce is final then I will be able to finish my loan stuff and look for a good paying less stress job. Working the side of the interstates anymore is way too dangerous.

Re: Job? Looking

If you like to weld, why not look into John Deere in Ankeney, or a skilled trade like sheet metal or plumbers/steam fitters. I know our hall is desperate for welders right now.

I have been thinking of getting into welding as a career lately.

I would suggest Deere, but I am afraid there likely will not be any openings for a while. The Cotton business section orders are down due to the market being down, so we are having to tighten up a bit. There should be no shortage of weld jobs in the area though.

Last week when I was in Colfax for the home inspection I noticed a weld shop so once all is final on the house I will stop in.
