Thanks to the support of our community, YouTern and The Savvy Intern are now more popular than Argo; considered as contagious as the Harlem Shake; and are cuter than Taylor Swift!
Okay, no. We’re not any of those things…
However, we ARE one of the five finalists in About.com’s “Readers’ Choice Awards for 2013”!
Among all the amazing career blogs and sites out there, we’d be more than honored to be a finalist in even one category. With your generous support – because YOU showed up in great numbers to vote for us in the nomination round – we are finalists in TWO categories this year (only YouTern and that monstrously monsterous job board were named twice as finalists… how cool is that?!)
So What Happens Next?
Voting is now open… but only until March 19th.
To be considered the Best Career Blog and the Best Job Site for Students, we need your vote. We need your friends’ votes. We need the vote of every American, regardless of political party, religious affiliation, gender, race or what movie you thought should have won the Oscar for “Best Picture”!
You can vote once per day, for each nomination… so go back and vote daily with your morning coffee or evening happy hour!

The team here at YouTern is incredibly grateful for your support… and friendship.
When we started this a couple years ago, we never would have imagined being considered in the Top 50, let alone the top 5, by a site as prestigious as About.com. We thank our partners, authors and our community for everything we’ve accomplished to date… and, with your help, look forward to so much more!
We’d also like to thank About.com, the director, the writers, the entire cast… (oops, wrong speech!)
Seriously… thank you.
Now go vote! And ask Taylor Swift to vote… or, we’ll make you listen to the Harlem Shake a million more times.
PS The winners will be announced on March 27th… after that, we promise awards season will be over.
