Wow! The Charlie Sheen intern tweet drew 74,040 applications. So many people are interested in interning for the unemployed winner. In fact, @charliesheen now has 2,446,092 followers (is it slowing down a little?).
The actual tweet advertising for a winning intern actually broke yet another Twitter record. On March 7, @charliesheen tweeted, Â“IÂ’m looking to hire aÂ #winning INTERN withÂ #TigerBlood. Apply here -Â http://bit.ly/dJsTRF #TigerBloodIntern #internship #ad.Â”
The simple tweet caused 95,333 people to click through to the online application (were you one of them?). That is amazing that so many people clicked through the link. Of everyone who clicked through, at least 74,040 have applied. The Charlie Sheen intern applicants represent 181 countries.
The Sheen intern application deadline is actually March 11, so there are still a couple of days for interested applicants to fill it out. How on Earth will he wade through the avalanche of applications to find the one winning social media intern he wants? It is going to be a rough job.
Thankfully for Charlie Sheen, he actually wonÂ’t have to filter through tens of thousands of resumes. On March 14, each applicant will receive an email for an official resume, and then a software program will filter through to find keywords that Team Sheen is looking for. The entire pile will be whittled down to the 50 best matches, and eventually one person will be chosen to be the Sheen intern. Wow!
