The Ultimate Sports Social Media Job Contest

Comcast began to rebrand their television, internet, and telephone services under the “XFINITY” name two years ago, and have now partnered with SB Nation to deliver what looks to be an intriguing opportunity for sports fans who are involved with social media.

The full release of this contest can be found below, but here’s a breakdown of what you will earn if you win the competition:

1) A job working as the social media representative for XFINITY where you will tweet about sports on a daily basis

2) A one-year salary complete with electronics for the “ultimate sports pad”

3) A pretty sweet gig especially in these improving but still rough economic times

You enter the contest by logging on to XFINITY’S Facebook page and uploading a 30 second to 2 minute video explaining why you are the best person for the job. Submissions are closed on February 6th, where voting begins on your video.

If you enter the contest please let us know in the comments– we’ll throw the force of a Douglas Murray body check into promoting your video and getting you into the second round.

Here’s the release:
