The energy and diversity of these students is incredible. I want to hire the best student the program has to offer. And, down the road, I’d like to hire a dream team from DISC.
- Byron Shantz, St. Jacobs Furnishing
When I finished my 4-year degree I had a hard time finding meaningful work. The DISC program gave me the proper guidance, resources and real work experience to set me up for a successful career in digital marketing. I’ve now quit my old job and do digital marketing full time thanks to DISC.
