Chivers, you never cease to amaze us. Two weeks ago we asked you to submit your school just to be included when the voting started and we had so many submissions, you broke the damn map.

The final five schools for the Raid Party Sweeps are:

- Arizona State University
The votes have been reset, so if you live close to one of these bad boys help 'em out. You have until midnight (Eastern Standard Time) tonight to determine who theCHIVE will raid. The clock is ticking on this 22 Jump Street covert mission. Vote NOW.
theCHIVE is expanding its Advertising team and hiring an Ad Trafficker because, frankly, we're attempting to be all grown up over here.

You will also communicate with clients to maintain customer satisfaction and report on the status of advertisements to upper management.

With 22 Jump Street coming out on June 13th, we are throwing a raid party and want to see which campus is serious about getting their very own CHIVE meet up. Voting starts NOW so get everyone you know to bring this one home!

When it comes to pleasing our neighbors to the north the only correct answer is MOAR. So with that in mind, for the first time this year we are releasing the KCCO Canada tees in force at 3 PM EST (12 PDT), sneak peak HERE.
But in honor of this monumental launch we are going to dedicate an entire gallery to all ye sexy Canadian Chivettes out there. It's arguably the greatest decision we've made in ever. So this is a call to arms, ladies. Upload all your best photos to our handy submit page HERE
Your country is depending on you. I'm looking your way, Alberta.
With the mind-blowing underground growth theCHIVE has experienced over the past couple years, we need to man-up and continue providing our users with the awesomeness they come to expect. The first helping hand we need is a shiny new Special Operations Editor with a Knowledge of the digital marketplace (including social & mobile).
The next role, which is one we've been at for a while now, is the role of a new Jr. Editor. As you probably gathered by now content is king, and we want somebody to bring their own fresh brand of comedy and perspectives to theCHIVE. The job will require a keen sense of what is funny, unique and relevant on the internet. In addition the person will be required to keep on top of the pulse of the internet as well as to sift through hundreds of Chive submits a day to bring users with an updated daily batch of Chiver glory.
NOTE: BOTH jobs will require a 1 minute video telling us why you are the perfect fit for the job including a resume to workatthechive[at]gmail[dot]com with subject line: Special Ops Editor OR Jr. Editor.
For more details on both jobs check out the Resignation homepage HERE.
Applicants MUST be living in or near Austin, Texas in order to be considered.

Here at theCHIVE, one of our biggest goals has been to bring our online community offline. We love watching Chivers grab a beer, meet new people, and maybe find a little love. When we began throwing official meetups a few years ago, we started to see regional groups (or Chive Chapters) follow our lead, gathering on social media to hold unofficial parties and often raise money for charity.
And then these regional groups BLEW UP. Within six months, we saw the number of chapters double, doing incredible local charity work and throwing insane parties. With how fucking awesome they've become, we'd like to recognize the top chapters for all of the work they've put in and what they've done in the name of theCHIVE.
We're thrilled to announce Bona Fide Chive Chapters. Why Bona Fide? Bona Fide is latin for genuine and real - it's for chapters doing big things in their community and representing what theCHIVE is and what it's going to become.
There really isn't a guideline or criteria for making a chapter Bona Fide, it's more of a tip of the cap for being certifiably awesome. We'll be announcing the first Bona Fide Chive Chapter tomorrow, with more to follow.
To find the Chive Chapter nearest you, check out our interactive Chive Nation Map.
TheCHIVERY is expanding and in need of a Customer Experience Manager. Customer experiences are important to most organizations as you might imagine. The average dissatisfied or “wronged” customer will tell eight to sixteen people about it. One-fifth of dissatisfied customers tell at least twenty people about their bad experience...and they tell two friends, and they tell two friends...and so on, and so on. You get the picture. If you've got the people skills and the necessary tools for the job check out Resignation Media for further details.
The moment has arrived. Tickets for theCHIVE's first-ever international official meetup are officially available! We have no idea what to expect from our Chivers on the Emerald Isle, but one thing is for sure, we're all going to get after it.
Tickets and info for the Dublin Chive Meetup on Saturday, February 22nd are available RIGHT HERE.
