Pueblo Community College helped Jacob Rivera get a head start on his successful career.

“I got my first real-world experience in the industry with my internship at Pueblo School District 60, which turned into a four-year job for me as a junior graphic designer,” said Jacob.

During his tenure with the school district, he helped with the rebranding of two schools, one department and the district itself, paving the way for his move to a local marketing company.
