Husky Unleashed Juan Jimenez

Husky Unleashed - Taking whatever life throws at you

Juan Jimenez’s educational journey hasn’t followed the easiest of paths. However, according to those who know him best, this laid back influential Husky wouldn’t want it any other way.

Jimenez, an accounting and finance major, graduated from Bloomsburg University in May with not just one but two bachelor’s degrees. He also walked across the graduation stage with a job offer already in hand — a position with the prestigious accounting firm Deloitte Touche, one of the “big four” professional services firms in the world with PricewaterHouseCooper, Ernst & Young, and KPMG.

For Jimenez, of Allentown, graduating college was simply the next accepted challenge in his “take what life throws at you” approach. Jimenez admits attending college didn’t come into real focus until late in his high school career, but he quickly fell in love with Bloomsburg after visiting campus. Discovering the College of Business is fully accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AASCB) was icing on the cake, he adds.

A foundation for success was established early in his freshman year. Jimenez credits the Act 101/Equal Opportunity Program for teaching him how to be more accountable for his progress and behavior as a college student, a motivation that eventually led him to an internship with Deloitte. And through his performance the internship turned into a job offer, simply another challenge that life decided to throw at Jimenez. #HuskyUnleashed
