If this sounds like you, get ready for a great career as a metal fabricator. Metal fabricators are the people who create the components and parts that are made out of metal. They might work on putting together one set of components or work on the finished product. Sometimes this is done by hand, but often this is done with robots and computers and other devices that make the assembly process faster and more precise. Metal fabricator jobs can be easy or incredibly complicated, and require skills such as reading schematics, quality control and technical/mechanical know how. Metal fabricators may work with structural metal, which is heavy and load bearing, or sheet metal, which is the thin metal sheeting used in duct work and similar areas.
