Want access to the biggest sporting events of the year and get paid to do it? Enter XFINITY's Ultimate Sports Social Media Job contest, the winner gets that and more.
I've had the pleasure of getting to know many of you via Twitter and Facebook, and I've always very much enjoyed what you've had to say about the team, the league and life in general.
So much so, I gotta say I'd be disappointed if at least one member from Behind The Steel Curtain was not selected as a finalist in the XFINITY Sports Social Media Job search.
XFINITY is looking for the next voice of Xfinity sports. The Ultimate Sports Social Media Job presented by XFINITY provides fans the opportunity to become the next sports social media star.The winner will share behind-the-scenes stories and news with more than 15,000 followers, from the biggest sporting events over the next year.
Applicants are asked to create a short video and statement detailing why they should be the next person to take over the @XFINITYSports handle.
Eight Semi-finalists will be catapulted to the next round based on their outstanding submissions, but the final two Semi-finalist spots will be awarded to two of ten Wild Card contestants. Fans will have the opportunity to vote for one of the ten Wild Cards, to send to the next round. Once selected, the skills of the 10 Semi-finalists will be put to thetest in a full scale social media evaluation at XFINITY Live! in Philadelphia.The top scoring five contestants will then receive the opportunity to visit an XFINITY partner team to act as a reporter and share their experience with their fans.
