XFINITY Presents: The Ultimate Sports Social Media Job

XFINITY Sports

Ever wanted a job that is the best of both worlds: covering sports AND getting paid to do it? Well, INFINITY has a unique contest going that will give one lucky winner their dream job

XFINITY reached out to a select number of SB Nation blogs with this unique opportunity, and we wanted to help spread the word. Here's the down low for you. The promotion runs from January 28 - April 16th, during which time XFINITY will be scouring the landscape for the next voice of INFINITY Sports.

To take part, just hit up the XFINITY Facebook page at www.facebook.com/xfinity. The winner will have quite the gig, as they will have the opportunity to share some behind the scenes stories with over 15,000 followers, while covering the biggest sporting events for the next year. For your viewing, here's a little video to peruse:



Here's a little more info for you direct from INFINITY:

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 the test 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. Ultimately from the five Finalists, the new voice of XFINTIY Sports will be selected.

So if you think you have what it takes for a full time, fully paid sports social media job, throw your hat in the ring. Here's what the winner has to look forward to:
