Interest Codes

Welders
OBJECTIVE

Interest in precision working to fuse metal segments using processes such as gas tungsten arc (GTAW), gas metal arc (GMAW), flux-cored arc (FCAW), plasma arc (PAW), shielded metal arc (SMAW), oxy-acetylene (OAW), resistance welding and submerged arc welding (SAW)

METHODICAL

Interest in cleaning and preparing pieces for welding

INNOVATIVE

Interest in compiling information from specifications to shape metal by operating metalworking machines such as brakes, shears and other metal straightening and bending machines; and in examining and repairing worn parts of metal products by welding on extra layers

Reading Interest Codes
A Quick Guide

The interest code helps you figure out if you’d like to work in a particular occupation.
