#tigerbloodintern file under #PRNightmare ::intern search for charlie sheen::
It has come to my attention Charlie sheen is looking for PR interns. The contest #tigerbloodintern, is something I’d file under PR nightmare.
8 a.m. kick out night shift hookers
8:15 a.m. prep day shift hookers
8:15 a.m. (multi-tasking) crush up five – seven 8-balls
Repeat until your personal stash runs out. Send for back-up on Twitter. Hire another intern.
After joining Twitter and setting records in acquiring more followers within twenty four hours than had ever been accomplished prior, Charlie Sheen announced a competition to recruit a new intern to deal with his social media endeavors. Easier said than done, considering the entire world wanted the coveted job. Okay, maybe not the entire world; but those 80.000 people that made it to Round 2 sure did.
What did they have to do? Prove through a small on-line survey that they are familiar with social networking. So basically, prove that they’re not just another wannabe who doesn’t make the distinction between Twitter, Facebook and Myspace, and say why they think they deserve the job. Seems simple enough, but considering that only about 250 people made it to Round 3, the recruiting process wasn’t as easy as the questions made it seem. After all, a 12 year old can use Facebook, but it does take special skills to know how to use social networking in a productive manner.
