About Working in Kansas City, Missouri

When you look for Kansas City jobs, you'll need to decide if that's KCMO or KCK—there's a big difference. KCMO is Kansas City, Missouri. KCK is Kansas City, Kansas. To help confuse you, they're both in the same metro area. KCMO was named after the Kansas River and incorporated first. Legend says the people of Kansas (KSK) resented that another state named a city after them. They took the name partly out of resentment and partly to capitalize on the good fortune of the other Kansas City, hoping that confused industries and investors would bring Kansas City jobs and money to their side of the border.

KCMO held its ground. Today, it has more fountains than anywhere but Rome (200+), more boulevards anywhere but Paris (132 miles), and more barbeque restaurants per capita than anywhere else in the world. If you're a new graduate looking for jobs in Kansas City, you'll be happy to know that the city is one of the best-paying locations in the U.S. for recent college grads. When you land one of those Kansas City jobs and start looking for housing, you can have a quick commute to the city from the suburbs of Independence, Blue Springs, and Lee's Summit.
