The competition for the BookRenter Summer 2011 Social Media Internship is over, and we’re pleased to announce that Charmaine Ng, a student at the University of Oregon, and Keith Kaplan, who just completed his undergraduate work at Michigan’s Albion College, will officially be joining the BookRenter team for the summer.
Charmaine and Keith – who also received shiny new iPads – were among 10 finalists chosen by BookRenter staffers from among hundreds of seriously amazing applicants. BookRenter’s terrific Facebook fans then narrowed the field by popular vote to a Top Three that also included Brittany Goodman of Peace College.
The other finalists were:
- Mia Mishek I UNIVERSITY OF MINNESOTA DULUTH
- Samantha (Sami) Main I UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA
- Kimberly Erskine I ROWAN UNIVERSITY
- Angela Andaloro I PACE UNIVERSITY
- Sarah Coffey I DRAKE UNIVERSITY
- Taylor Dunnigan I EASTERN CONNECTICUT STATE UNIVERSITY
- Rachel Freeman I SAN FRANCISCO STATE UNIVERSITY
We’re tremendously excited about having Charmaine and Keith on board – and a little bit sad that we didn’t have a slot for ALL the wonderful students we met during the course of the competition. The good news: In the months ahead there will be a number of opportunities for students who are interested in working informally with the BookRenter team as Guest Bloggers and on special initiatives. So stay tuned!
In the meantime, our heartfelt thanks to everyone who took the time to apply for a Summer 2011 Social Media Internship; to our 10 finalists, who logged some impressive hours authoring guest blogs (and coming up with creative ways to win your votes!); and to our rockin’ Facebook fans, who had the tough job of narrowing a field of 10 outstanding intern candidates to our final three.
