Charlie Sheen wants an intern with #TigerBlood
Well, here's a summer gig that promises to be memorable: Charlie Sheen tweeted this afternoon that he's looking to hire "a #winning INTERN with #TigerBlood."
The social media internship will focus on "executing a social media strategy" and "leveraging his social network" by monitoring Sheen's social media accounts, preparing for online projects and increasing Sheen's number of Twitter followers (so far he has more than 2 million), according to the posting Sheen linked to in his tweet.
And unlike a lot of internships out there, Sheen plans to pay his intern.
The "Team Sheen" ad is part of a sponsorship deal between Sheen and Internships.com, which connects students with employers offering internships, according to the Associated Press. The paid endorsement was set up by the start-up ad.ly, which arranges pay-to-tweet deals with celebs. Neither company would discuss the financial arrangements,the AP reported, but micro-endorsements like this one usually cost $1,000 to $50,000 per tweet.
The first-round of applications are due Friday at midnight ... so, um, start winning now.
