All new 5 in 1, Personal Branding, 60-Minute Online Course by BrandDisco©, will be used to help Claflin’s graduates obtain more career clarity, confidence & competitive advantage as they transition from campus life to the corporate workforce.

Fort Mill, SC., (September 10, 2019) — DeMario & Dawn Nicole McIlwain, Husband & Wife Co-Founders at BrandDisco©, a veteran owned company which offers signature online development tools for modern workforce leaders, is excited to partner with HBCU Claflin University for the pilot of its new automated Personal Branding Course designed to help graduates become career ready faster!

Recent studies show that a college degree alone is no longer enough to successfully compete in today’s evolving global workforce & instead employers have a growing desire to understand how candidates make decisions, innovate, manage change, etc.

By partnering with Claflin University, BrandDisco© will pilot its signature Personal Branding Online Course, which focuses on the many ways new graduates should present their top talents to key decision-makers & highlight their differentiating soft skills.

BrandDisco©’s vision is to eventually introduce this signature course across global workforce markets, however it was especially important to launch it with the HBCU market first, as a demographic which has demonstrated having a disparity gap in comparison to traditional universities.

As a result, and in alignment with Claflin University’s Mission, BrandDisco© is beyond thrilled to help Claflin better support those they serve.

Designed to take learners from beginning to winning, BrandDisco©’s signature Personal Branding Online Course, will guide emerging graduates through Understanding what Personal Branding means in an evolving world, Why & When Personal Branding matters, Real Time Discovery of their own Personal Brand, how to align their Personal Brand strengths to their career goals and will issue a final certification showing an ability to apply what’s been taught.

 "Earlier this year, BrandDisco©'s team, worked with Claflin Student-Athletes to garner early participation around taking the HBCU Personal Brand Assessment. Based on the large number of students who took interest, we’re excited to take this next step in offering the full 60-minute online course. We are pleased that BrandDisco© is offering this new training course to our Claflin emerging Graduates first." - Marilynn Stacey-Suggs

 “We believe Claflin University is the ideal partner for this pilot since their vision is to be recognized as a leading 21st Century institution of higher education, which is exactly the type of future-forward partners BrandDisco© supports,” said BrandDisco©’s Co-Founders, DeMario and Dawn Nicole McIlwain.
