XFINITY Presents: The Ultimate Sports Social Media Job Contest

Yes, friends of RTT, you can prove to your loved ones that all of that time "wasted" on social media really was the equivalent of associate degree in marketing. Because yeah, you could become a professional sports social media dude thanks to Xfinity.

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. They're calling the contest "Xfinity Presents: The Ultimate Sports Social Media Job," and it 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. Dream job? Yeah, for anyone wanting to make a name for themselves in the world of sports and social media.

Here's how it works:

Sometime between now and February 6, log on to 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 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 to today and click on the Ultimate Sports Social Media Job contest tab for all the details, as well as contest rules. Enter soon, because February 6th is the deadline for video submissions! Thanks to Rocky Top Talk partner XFINITY for bringing this opportunity to our readers.
