82556992Communications giant AT&T Inc. announced Thursday that it will create more than 50 jobs in Colorado, around 25 of which will be customer-care positions based in Pueblo.

“Colorado has a rich talent for high-tech jobs at all levels,” Jenifer Robertson, vice president and general manager for AT&T-Rocky Mountain Region, said in news release.

“AT&T continues to expand its customer base in Colorado and invest in our network to ensure we are providing the best experience that our customers have come to expect …”

The company currently employs around 2,000 workers in Colorado, according to the release. AT&T spent roughly $280 million on employee training and about $26.6 million to provide tuition aid to its workers in 2012.

The company, which claims to be among the country’s largest employers — and the largest U.S. employer of full-time union labor — said that it had invested nearly $90 million in both its wired and wireless networks throughout Colorado in the first half of 2013.
