I am interested in moving to the Tampa area particularly Brandon. I currently live in Minneapolis. What is the job market like down there compared to Minneapolis?
Is it easy to find jobs? Do jobs pay well? Are there any local job sites on the web that are recommended?

My advice is to call on the many well-known boat manufacturers all around the region such as Yellow Fin, Chris Craft, and others (some very good custom shops as well).....e.g. custom railings, tuna towers, outriggers, etc

Also, please do check with the Port of Manatee, and McDill AirForce Base, our home of CentCOM !!

Don't forget to also check with FDOT, and some of the large commercial builders in the region

I don't know whether yo're Mig or Tig or all of it ??

The reason why I asked there are SEVERAL custom casual furniture manufacturers than weld aluminum ...Tropitone, etc

Welding pays ok but you breath in stuff that is bad for your health. If i could do something else i would.
