There is no doubting the power that social media has garnered over the sporting world over the past few years. Avenues such as Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, etc. have revolutionized the way in which people get their information. Personally, I pretty much have a moment everyday where I wonder how I got sports news before the dawn of Twitter and other social media sites. Now you can turn that addictive hobby into a job with XFINITY as they are rolling out a cool new contest to find the next star of social media.
The contest is called "Xfinity Presents: The Ultimate Sports Social Media Job" and runs from January 28 through February 18. Fans will also be asked to vote for Wild Card contestants from March 4 through March 11. The winner will receive:
- Unparalleled access to the country's premier sporting events
- Annual salary
- XSG Home Studio in Philadelphia apartment
- 12 months of free Comcast/XFINITY service (TV with all sports packages, internet and phone)
This is truly a dream job opportunity for anyone looking to make a name for themselves in the world of sports and social media.
Here's how it works:
From January 28 - February 18, you can log on to Facebook.com/XFINITY and submit a video on the Ultimate Sports Social Media Job contest tab that shows why your sports knowledge, social media expertise, personality, and passion for Comcast products and services makes you the perfect candidate for the job.
The top video submissions will be featured on the Ultimate Sports Social Media Job contest tab located on Facebook.com/XFINITY for Wild Card voting from March 4-11. Ten semifinalists will be flown to Philadelphia for performance evaluations at XFINITY Live! Five finalists will be on-site for baseball's opening weekend April 5-7. Following that weekend, a panel of judges will evaluate each performance and announce the winner of the contest in mid-April!
