You know what the most fun part of running BFTB is? It's running the Twitter account and talking with San Diego Chargers fans, both crazy and sane alike, all day. If you don't follow or tweet at me (@BFTB_Chargers), you should. It's usually fun or at the very least an easy way to get yelled at by me.
Anyway, with that in mind, you should know the getting paid to do "social media" is a blast. Luckily for you, Xfinity is looking for someone to do it for them (and talk about sports)...
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 Bolts from the Blue-partner XFINITY for bringing this opportunity to our
This is one of those times when I'm a little sad that I already run BFTB, because it probably means I'm out of the running to win the contest. Seriously though, in this economy, you couldn't ask for a better opportunity. So grab your Flip Camera or your iPhone and make a zany video to put you in the running. Then come back and tell us about it so that we have a rooting interest.
