@Work Advice Contest: Who got immunity?

Our @Work Advice Contest finalists have until 11:59 p.m. ET tonight to compete for your votes (and the chance for a series of columns in The Washington Post Magazine). Only eight can advance to the second round. But while nine of the 10 finalists will have to wait until the polls close to find out their fate, one can breathe an early sigh of relief.

The @Work judging panel had the option of selecting one finalist for immunity, which would guarantee a spot in Round 2. They chose Karla Miller , whom they felt had a “good combination of thoughtful advice and verve in her writing.” They praised her “upbeat style” and “readability,” and liked that she didn’t jump to conclusions in her responses to Round 1 questions on a racist boss and company loyalty.

The judges dont’ have access to the running vote totals, so their decision was based solely on the contestants’ work, without regard for who was ahead or behind in the poll. It wasn’t an easy call: Contestants Dean Buckley and Cindy Coe , runners-up for the immunity prize, were praised for being insightful and funny. Judges said they thought these two would sail through to the next round.

But we won’t know for sure until the voting is over. So go see all 10 finalists and then choose your favorite.
