Boilermaker jobs revolve around working with containers or vessels that hold liquids or gasses. This work might involve assembly, repair and maintenance, casting components, welding or reading and following complex blueprints.

Interpreting and implementing written instructions to real-life work
Shaping and cutting raw materials using a variety of instruments
Assembling structures through welding and bolting
