We want YOU to help choose the lucky winner.

We’re feeling pretty lucky this week. Not only did our search for a Summer 2011 Social Media Intern attract a record number of applicants, it produced 10 totally great finalists.

The downside: Of that 10, only one will get the job. Thankfully, the job of narrowing the field isn’t on our shoulders.

That’s because we’ve asked BookRenter’s Facebook fans to choose the lucky winner by popular vote.

Here’s how it works. Photos and short descriptions of the 10 finalists are just below. Click a pic and we’ll shoot you over to our Facebook page, where you can learn more about the candidates (look for the “Pick R Intern” link on the left-hand side of the page). To cast a vote for the person you think seriously rocks as a budding social media guru and BookRenter blogger, click the “Vote Now” button next to that person’s name. That’s all there is to it!

Voting ends at midnight on April 30th. Between now and then, you can vote up to once a day for your favorite candidate. The winner will be announced here and on Facebook the first week in May.


Mia Mishek I UNIVERSITY OF MINNESOTA DULUTH: Self-described curly-haired, potato-chip-loving day dreamer from Minnesota. But when it comes to social media this girl has some serious chops.


Charmaine Ng I UNIVERSITY OF OREGON: Ambitious and talented, honest and human, this tri-lingual social media strategist and curator is also a published author. Harbors a secret desire to one day have a multi-hyphenated title.


Keith Kaplan I ALBION COLLEGE: Brains (double-major honors student, Mortar Board, College Fellow) and brawn (swim team captain and an avid outdoorsman who most days can be seen paddling on the river that runs through his campus). Regular blogger. Co-founder of the eponymous DK Cookies (on Facebook!).


Kimberly Erskine I ROWAN UNIVERSITY: Currently her university’s Social Media Coordinator. Near-perfect GPA. Made it to Round Three of Charlie Sheen’s #TigerBloodIntern contest. This media-savvy girl – who dreams of becoming a successful writer and has just published her first major article – is seriously cool.


Brittany Goodman I PEACE COLLEGE: Creative. Well-connected. Has interned with non-profits in Germany, England, and South Korea. Believes in social media as a form of communication that’s every bit as important and meaningful as any other channel (we agree!).


Angela Andaloro I PACE UNIVERSITY: Smart, ambitious, and committed to the creative life, with a list of personal and professional goals that would stretch from here to the moon and back. Currently a Social Media Marketing Intern in New York City.


Sarah Coffey I DRAKE UNIVERSITY: Friends describe her as a loyal, driven, creative goofball. But this high-octane double major (graphic design and PR) has a laser-like focus when it comes to achieving her goals. Weakness: “I’m absolutely addicted to the Food Network.”


Rachel Freeman I SAN FRANCISCO STATE UNIVERSITY: Creative, outgoing, detail-oriented. Undergrad degree – cum laude – in communications. Currently pursuing a master’s in broadcast and electronic communication arts. Currently Social Media Consultant at Morgan Stanley Smith Barney. Not-so-secret passion: Baseball (go, San Francisco Giants!).


Samantha (Sami) Main I UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA: Bright, passionate, a fierce multi-tasker. Claim to fame: Made it to Round Three of Charlie Sheen’s controversial #TigerBloodIntern contest.


Taylor Dunnigan I EASTERN CONNECTICUT STATE UNIVERSITY: Funny, kind, passionate about social media (check out her YouTube channel and her popular blog, College Glamoration). Claims to fame: Competitive dancer, member of United States Dance Team, Silver Medalist at World Tap Dance Competition in Riesa, Germany.
