I know what you guys must be thinking about how glamorous it is to be a
highly-paid paid blogger for SBNation. I'm sure you tell yourselves every day "Self (because that's how you refer to yourself), I need to get me some of that sweet blogging cheddar. That guy is living it up on his SBNation blog while I'm sitting here doing nothing."
Well I can't help you with SBNation, I'm not allowed to officially hire anyone or form agent-principal relationships on their behalf, but I can help you with XFINITY. What's XFINITY, you ask? Excellent question, clever reader. They are part the company (Comcast) that is about to make all of your sports blogging dreams come true. That's right, all of them.*
Have you ever wanted a shot at winning your dream job in sports social media? Here’s your chance – XFINITY is launching a nationwide contest to find the next sports social media star to serve as the voice of XFINITY behind-the-scenes at the biggest sporting events nationwide in 2012.
The contest is called "Xfinity Presents: The Ultimate Sports Social Media Job" and runs from January 13th through March 25th. The winner will receive a one-year salary, all the electronics for the ultimate sports pad, and will have the opportunity to share thoughts, insights, and content with fans nationwide via the @XFINITYSports Twitter handle on a daily basis. 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 13 – February 6, you can log on to Facebook.com/XFINITY and submit a :30-2:00 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 fans to vote on from February 9-19. The five entrants who tally the most votes will advance to the final round of the contest where they will cover one of five premier sports events the weekend of March 8-11. Following that weekend, a panel of judges will evaluate each performance and announce the winner of the contest by March 25th!
Head today to Facebook.com/XFINITY and click on the Ultimate Sports Social Media Job contest tab for all the details, as well as contest rules. Enter soon, as February 6th is the deadline for video submissions! Thanks to Our Daily Bears' partner XFINITY for bringing this opportunity to our readers.
Indeed, thank you XFINITY for giving some lucky viewer of this blog the chance to submit their own video and join the ranks of gainfully-employed sports bloggers. Oh yes.
*Seriously, if you click on the link this job actually sounds pretty cool. Not like that MLB cave thing where you have to watch baseball in a room all the time and risk the chance of a Padres-Reds game being assigned for that day. The horror...
