XFINITY Presents: The Ultimate Sports Social Media Job Contest

XFINITY is offering anyone who wishes to apply, between January 28 and February 18, the chance to get a paid job for their sports media account covering sports, among other goodies.

SB Nation gets some awesome promotional contests for fans to get in on every now and then, and the Brotherly Game is happy to announce that the latest one is through Xfinity Sports.

XFINITY is looking for the next voice of Xfinity sports. The Ultimate Sports Social Media Job presented by XFINITY, provides fans the opportunity to become the next sports social media star. The winner will share behind-the-scenes stories and news with more than 15,000 followers, from the biggest sporting events over the next year.

Applicants are asked to create a short video and statement detailing why they should be the next person to take over the @XFINITYSports handle. Eight Semi-finalists will be catapulted to the next round based on their outstanding submissions, but the final two Semi-finalist spots will be awarded to two of ten Wild Card contestants. Fans will have the opportunity to vote for one of the ten Wild Cards, to send to the next round.

Once selected, the skills of the 10 Semi-finalists will be put to the test in a full scale social media evaluation at XFINITY Live! in Philadelphia. The top scoring five contestants will then receive the opportunity to visit an XFINITY partner team to act as a reporter and share their experience with their fans. Ultimately from the five Finalists, the new voice of XFINTIY Sports will be selected.

Between January 28th to February 18th, anyone who wants to enter, to the XFINITY Facebook page, just has to provide a short video and written statement that says why that person should be selected as the "next voice of XFINITY Sports." Check out the full list of contest rules, prizes and everything else here.

The best part of this contest for a large portion of you who read the Brotherly Game is that the contest's later rounds end up in Philadelphia's own Xfinity live, which is located in the South Philadelphia sports complex.

Go ahead and apply, since there's no reason not to do so: a paid job, more access to sports and behind the scenes stuff than you've ever had before, among other prizes.
