So begins the ad on Internships.com for an eight-week, full-time, paid summer internship with Charlie Sheen. Prospects only have until this Friday at midnight to apply. They must use 75 characters to describe why they should be chosen in the first round, and then submit a resume and further info for the second.

Sheen holds the Guinness Record for how fast he amassed a million followers, and he’s got everyone’s attention on social media and elsewhere. But, we don’t know how long that will last, how #winning the Charlie Sheen brand really is, or what it would be like to work with him.

He’s been fired by Warner Brothers.(Sheen’s statement: “This is a very good thing.”) The online Ustream show “Sheen’s Korner” that launched this weekend wasn’t a stunning success. And for all his funny one-liners and wild antics, there is a more serious domestic abuse discussion happening.

So as a service to the young up-and-comers to the industry, we have today’s PRNewser poll.

Is this a good opportunity for a student with social media interests? Is this a positive addition to a resume?
