Dr. Todd Oldham Interviewed About “New Collar” Jobs

WHEC-TV news reporter Kaci Jones interviewed Dr. Todd Oldham, vice president of economic and workforce development, on “new collar” jobs, also called “middle skills” jobs by some in industry. These are high-demand, good-paying positions that require some specialized education (typically in a technical field), but not a four-year college degree.

Dr. Oldham talked about the education and training MCC provides to prepare students for these positions and meet employers’ workforce demands. He cited MCC’s partnership in P-TECH Rochester (Pathways in Technology Early College High School) as one of the ways MCC helps students move through high school and college purposely toward achieving careers in information and network technology.
