Outstanding Career Influencer: Jimia Boutouba

Congratulations to Jimia Boutouba, Chair of Modern Languages and Literatures, who was nominated by SCU students and selected as an Outstanding Career Influencer for 2021-2022. This award is given by SCU's Career Center in order to recognize and honor those whose work with students has made a lasting impact in terms of their career development and their sense of who they are becoming.

Although I was pursuing a business major, she was the one who ultimately prompted me to seriously consider declaring a second major in French, which I ultimately did. Since then, practically every internship offer or employer that has reached out to me has commented on this double major, and the uniqueness this combination adds to my applications.” -Claire Andreski ‘24
