Sheen gets 74,040 applications for internship
NEW YORK (AP) -March 9, 2011 (WPVI) -- How bad is the current job market? At least 74,040 people would like to work for Charlie Sheen.
Internships.com said Wednesday that that's how many people have applied to Sheen's internship position since he posted it Monday. The actor said he would pay someone to help leverage his social media network this summer.
The posting was also a paid advertisement from Internships.com. The application wasn't exactly extensive: It limited applicants to 75 characters or less.
On Monday, Charlie Sheen was fired by Warner Bros. Television from the hit CBS show "Two and a Half Men." In a webcast Tuesday evening, Sheen lambasted the decision.
