The site offers users the chance to apply immediately, as a pop-up ad asks users if they’re there to apply for Sheen’s gig as soon as they enter the site. Once there, users are told they have until March 14 to apply for the eight-week, paid internship.

      “alot of common sense”

  3. Steve says:

    Looks to me like Charlie Sheen has gone on a drug induced trip that he is not coming back from.

    1. TT says:

      i hope your wrong – but the pictures of the “then and now” are a bit disconcerting……I do wish him well..

  4. Monalsa Liz-ardo says:

    He needs a mouthpiece, his Publicity agent quit. He has enough funds to last his lifetime and alimony, why work?

  5. Daniel says:

    Maybe he won’t need an intern now that he’ll have a lot more free time on his hands.

  6. BD McGee says:

    That’s a lot of people with no life.

  7. Fred Lopez says:

    sheen is a loser and anyone who would apply is a bigger loser

    1. Laughing in el monte says:

      Or, plotting how to skim his fortune when he’s all too busy snorting cocaine off Bree Olson.

  8. Gary Busey says:

    Hire me I would perfect person for the job!!!

    1. Deb says:

      Actually, you would be and I’m not kidding.

  9. c.berg says:

    All my children are grown and quite sane; I would be happy to take this young confussed man and guide him along on the right path and not take any sh-t from him either. I am six foot tall and weigh 175 lbs. and don’t mess with me because I will come out the winner. Let me know!

    1. thoMz says:


      you’re fat and full of LOSE.

  10. roe says:

    I myself did not think sheen was the show , it was the housekeeper, Rosie and the mother. I enjoyed the show when they were on. I hope they get a bigger part on the show

  11. RN Angel says:

    At the rate he’s going, Charlie needs to start lining up pallbearers, not interns.

  12. Rollo2 says:

    Never watched his show, I’m twice his age, and SN is for people who don’t know anybody, or anything, important.

  13. Rollo2 says:

    Talk about a temporary position,… Maybe Charlie should call MANPOWER?

    1. Ernest Strong says:

      Not MANpower. He’s into women

  15. Gustoff says:

    Well, when he says “intern” he really means “nanny”, and when he says “nanny” he really means “skanky porn star”, so if you want to apply the only “social networking” you’ll be doing is working on Charlie’s hard drive.

  16. Mr. Webster says:

    Do you people read your comments before hitting send. Your grammar and spelling are terrible,

    1. Pookie says:

      Hey, be nice…making fun of someones gramma is wrong! Some of them can barely see to type.

      Gram if you see this, I love you!

  17. Ernest Strong says:

    Did Nancy Pelosi or Debbie Wassermann apply? I would think that someone experienced in the ways of Interns might be first on line. Hillary Clinton comes to mind.

  18. John Angel says:

    You’re all missing the point, at least he’s not cowering like most of you.

  19. TigerSkin Rubbers says:

    8 Weeks while he sits in rehab. Person will monitor and provide CS anecdotes to Promote CS while rehabilitating at undisclosed “ranch” in neveda.

    toof unny

    1. Pookie says:

      Sharkskin Rubbers would be cool. Maybe using Sharklet material would reduce some STD infections? Maybe TigerShark Rubbers🙂

  23. OHboy says:

    How much cocaine did Charlie Sheen do?
    Enough to kill two and a half men.

  24. Kazwell says:

    ” How bad is the current job market? At least 74,040 people would like to work for Charlie Sheen.”
    Dumb premise. Of course a ton of folks are going to apply. It has nothing to do with the job market, it has to do with people wanting to be in on the popularity wave of his notorious notoriety.
    Just wait and see. If he does pick one, it will be a sexy blonde in her early twenties. Only a very minute percentage of the 75K have the “qualifications” he is looking for.

  25. Tom M. says:

    King of the Tools…

  26. DarkStarAz says:

    Charlie is not as nuts as you think.
    Its called ACTING…

  27. Hank Warren says:

    Charlie Sheen may be crazy but he was right about 9/11. 9/11 and Israel, here:

  28. charlie says:

    so, now that makes 75,001 losers!!!

  29. Pookie says:

    Dr. Conrad Murray should do it. Michael Jackson passed away and he hasn’t seen gainful employment since. A new employer might do him good…and you have to give it to him….the man knows how to administer sedation.

    We made it to round 3. Check out our video application:
    Made by the team at SignedOn.

    In the video we’re using a new QR technology that we hope to make video integrated with interactive features – something that Sheen could totally use on Sheen’s Korner and his Twitter.

    We made it to round 3. Created by the SignedOn team! Check out our video application:

    As goofy as it may seem, working with Mr. Sheen would be win-win situation for us! We’re working to develop QR technology to the point that someone such as Mr. Sheen would be able to merge interactive features with his talk-show “Sheen’s Korner”.
