This is a dream job opportunity for anyone looking to make a name for themselves in the world of sports and social media.
Sounds great, you say. So what do I do?
From January 28 through February 18, 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.
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.
