So I found out a few days ago that ESPN Deportes, for the third year in a row is giving aspiring sports journalists across the nation the chance to compete for the opportunity to serve as a social media reporter for ESPN Deportes in Brazil. Unlike previous years, they decided to make the casting a bit more “social”. You read that right…This year’s search will be driven by social media participation and supplemented by TV studio programs, the network’s top soccer talent, ESPNDeportes.com and ESPN Deportes Radio.
That means that YOU have an opportunity to submit your audition videos if sports reporting is your #DreamJob
Now, I admittedly know almost nothing about Soccer (although I did play for a Dorado municipal team in Puerto Rico circa 1983) but I do know that this opportunity would appeal to quite a few of my friends, listeners and readers.
You mean the world to me so I have decided to promote this campaign and enlist fellow blogger Zay Zay and share a video he posted last week when this challenge was announced.
As a seasoned Reportero himself… in this video he gives you some valuable tips on how to make your dream of becoming a ESPN Reportero a reality.
Check it out…
Now you got the inside scoop on how to make this video stand out…
Your challenge, should you choose to accept it is a video that;
