A Letter from Ismael

Franco Ismael

After graduating from high school, Ismael Franco entered the EET program because he wanted to begin his career in a relatively short time. He now works at Intel.

"At PCC, I learned the skills employers are looking for, such as good verbal and written communication skills as well as teamwork. The instructors are interested in their students’ success and keep in touch with them even after they’ve graduated. Whatever you decide to do, just focus yourself. There’s nothing like the sense of achievement that comes from reaching your goals."
