Judges’ comment

All three judges loved this site. It knows what it wants to communicate and does it in a clear, usable way. It struck us as a very helpful site for anyone who didn’t know how to plan a career [most people?]. By browsing systematically you would come up with an extremely useful blueprint. It’s rare for a site this large and complex to be so well done at every level. Kudos to the writers, editors, and designers.
