NEW YORK (AP) — Want to work for Charlie Sheen? He’s accepting applications.
Sheen tweeted Monday that he wants to hire an intern to assist him. The tweet is a paid-for endorsement from Internships.com.
The partnership was arranged by start-up ad.ly, which connects celebrities with advertisers for social media ads. Sheen officially signed on with ad.ly after the Beverly Hills, Calif.-based company consulted with him last week to familiarize him with Twitter.
Ad.ly and Internships.com declined to discuss the financial arrangements. Micro-endorsements can net a celebrity anywhere from $1,000 to $50,000 per tweet.
