Xfinity Ultimate Sports Social Media Job Winner – Austin Schindel [VIDEO]

There were hundreds of hopefuls that wanted to win the Xfinity Ultimate Sports Social Media job, but in the end, there could only be one winner.  Meet Austin Schindel, the new “Xfinity Sports Guy“.

Austin, who hails from Washington D.C., is the founder and editor-in-chief of his own sports blog and has worked in the media departments of both the Washington Redskins and Nationals.

In his new role, Austin will be reporting via the @XFINITYSports Twitter account behind the scenes at some of the biggest sporting events in the world.

I had the opportunity to speak with Austin recently where we discussed:

  • Some of the highlights in the first month of his new role as the Xfinity Sports Guy
  • What his initial reaction was when he heard the news that he had won the contest
  • Why he believes his past sports internship experience helped him land his dream job in sports
  • What he believes helped him ultimately stand out above the crowd and win the contest
  • Austin also tells us about the Ultimate Sports Pad package that he is receiving and what he is most looking forward to receiving
  • And finally……Austin offers advice to other that want to work in sports
Be sure to follow Austin via the @XFINITYSports Twitter handle as he goes behind-the-scenes at some of the biggest sporting events in 2012 and delivers insider content on a daily basis!
