How often do we come across people who take pride in their profession? Not very often, right? But taking pride in one’s own work is one of the core qualities of a happy employee.
We interacted with few employees of Fronius India, who shared why they chose welding as their career and how proud they are to be in this field.
Thanks to advancements in technology, that has taken away most of the physical work and opportunities to learn new skills, reskill and upskill, welding is no longer considered a difficult job but is considered as one of the most aspirational career options with steady career growth.
Find out what some of the proud welders have to say about welding, a highly skilled profession, and a brilliant career choice.
You can watch them share their stories on our YouTube channel, for which the link is given below.
“I am proud to be a welder”
“Initially when I joined Fronius, I was like any other regular welder. But right now, I grew up to be an Application Engineer. In the last five years, I trained so many people. I can proudly say that I am a solution provider and not just a welder.”
“Before joining Fronius, I considered welding to be a difficult job. After joining, I got an opportunity to work in a free environment, with constant learning and appreciation for my work. Today, I handle application support, training of the customer, demonstration of our welding machines, and supporting customers in solving their welding-related issues.”
“When I initially got into this field of welding, it was considered a tough job as the technology was not much advanced. But with advanced Fronius systems, we can arrive at perfect welding joint. With the technology at Fronius, we can control and monitor the parameters, through various devices. I am proud to be working here.”
“It has been a perfect joint from the day I started my career in welding. I believe welding is not just related to a welder or a machine but is an integral part of many industries and has been instrumental in industrial revolution. I am proud to be in this field.”
“In the past 10 years of my welding career, I have installed and handled several welding systems including robotic welding systems, SPMs, and customized automation solutions. I also trained many engineers in the field of welding, as part of knowledge sharing. As a mechatronics engineering, I am proud to be in this industry. The field of welding is like an ocean, we need to keep exploring the opportunities.”
“Welding is usually not considered an aspirational job. Once I joined, I realized welding is one of the most important jobs. At Fronius India, I was provided multiple opportunities to learn. This constant learning of processes has helped me meet the requirements of the customers.”
“I have a total of 22 years of experience in welding. I started my career with small-scale industries and now I am the Head – Technical Support, at Fronius India. When I joined this profession, I had no idea about the technological advancements in this field. After joining Fronius, I realized that more than 550 Engineers are working in the R&D department of Fronius and are continuously working towards developing new technology. I love what I do and I am proud to be in this field.”
