SPONSORED POST: The Ultimate Sports Social Media Job, presented by XFINITY

And no, it's not mine. We're looking for the next voice of @XFINITYSports, and it could be you. Upload a video, and you could win an interview that leads to the ultimate sports social media job.

How cool is Sebby Salazar? He was the on-field reporter at D.C. United games for Comcast SportsNet DC - and helped create a great team-sponsored podcast - before moving on up the ranks to an anchor position at CSN Houston. How would you like to follow in his footsteps? Not his footsteps exactly. Instead of being the on-field reporter, you'd be the social media voice for XFINITY for a year, traveling all over the country on their dime to cover the biggest sporting events, plus they'll set you up with more electronics than you can throw an iPad at. So, not quite Sebby Salazar - but certainly not too shabby.

Well, we've got the hook up. Head over to XFINITY's Facebook page (ALLCAPS optional, of course) to upload a video saying why you should be the next voice of XFINITY Sports, and you could win a dream sports media job as the voice of @XFINITYSports, with your tweets beamed out to literally thousands of followers. You want more information? Read on.

PROMOTION OVERVIEW: 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.
