Have you been under a rock? Or (like me for the last five days) on a cruise? Maybe you've just been watching so much college basketball lately that you haven't had time for anything else until you saw this very article.
What luck! Because, as we first announced a last month, communications leader XFINITY is launching a nationwide contest to find a sports-obsessed, social media maven for a one-year job to run their sports Twitter handle, @XFINITYSports.
Just send in a YouTube video explaining why you're perfect for the job, make it into the final round of five and cover a major sporting event in early March, and you're on your way to a rare opportunity: To earn a living talking about sports!
From February 9-19, you can review qualified entry videos and vote for the contestant you'd like to see advance to the finals of the XFINITY Ultimate Sports Social Media Job contest. The five entrants with the most votes will advance to the final round of the contest where they will cover one of five premier sporting events the weekend of March 8-11. Fans can head today to Facebook.com/XFINITY and click on the Ultimate Sports Social Media Job contest tab to vote for your favorite personality (once per day)!
The winning candidate will serve as the new voice of XFINITY in the sports social media space and go behind-the-scenes at some of the biggest sporting events in 2012, sharing exclusive insights and updates with fans.
