You can jump start your career on one of dozens of Gold Collar career pathways available at Metropolitan Community College. Gold Collar Jobs have a median wage of $30,000 to $80,000-plus and high local demand, require the high skills we teach and can be acquired with an associate's degree or less. In fact, you can begin many Gold Collar careers after just one semester with our job-ready certificates.

A great way to learn more about these careers is to attend a Gold Collar Jobs Exploration Night at the MCC-Business & Technology campus.

During these events, you will have the opportunity to learn about each of these pathways, visit with instructors in the programs and tour our state-of-the-art facility located at 1775 Universal Ave., Kansas City, Missouri, 64120. These are scheduled throughout the year.
