Charlie Sheen is looking for a SOCIAL MEDIA INTERN....

Below is the application that was created for Charlie Sheen. He is looking for a Social Media Intern.

At first glance, I thought of applying. I mean, really I am very media savvy. My own blog has a modest [over 100.000 hits which is way more than 7! ] following and I am thoroughly connected per FB, DS, NING, TANNER BRIGADE, TWITTER,  etc etc.

I am at ease with crowds, I speak ad lingo, and the fact that I am absolutely positively cute makes me disarming. And come on, who could resist me? If nothing else, my presence would raise Charlie Sheen's likability.  Re-hab his image somewhat, if that's even possible.  Ask any politician,  being seen with a dog is great for ratings. And being seen with a rescue dog... now, that's media platinum baby! 

Having said all that. It did not take a whole lot more thinking to conclude that I DO NOT WANT THE JOB. 

You read it correctly.  In fact, I can't see why any one with an eye towards their future would want this job.  Sideline participation in a little schadenfreude
is acceptable, but voluntary immersion in a pot of nutty is not... unless you are a 2nd year psychiatry resident with an eye on a unique dissertation that could eventually be published as a tell all book....

I assume that some sort of blood test will be required to id the tiger blood.  Mhh. I heard about all the drug testing, I did not hear about the tiger blood testing... If it involves peeing in a cup, good luck hitting your target.

I am also fascinated that planning skills are required. PLANNING. This is an activity that requires forethought, vision, goal directed behavior and an actual understanding of the variables and the control thereof. I am only a four legged, but a cursory review of the media reports of Mr. Sheen's escapades show a stellar lack of planning... and lack of self control... ANYWAY... I DO NOT WANT THIS JOB. I have concluded that any association with Mr Sheen would sully my rep and credibility... for life.
To any serious candidate out there, who is actually applying for this job.  Do you have self respect issues? Do you know that generally interns are unpaid???? And, do you have mental health support on retainer?  Don't sign any confidentiality agreements.  The only future you have is in the tell all book...
Just a bit of free advice from someone with perspective.

This job does seem like it would be more up Pocket's alley. Maybe she will send off an application.
