KENT, Ohio - A Kent State student must have some “tiger blood” because she is still in the running to become Charlie Sheen’s intern.
A few weeks ago, 21-year-old Kelsey Cullen was looking for a job when she noticed a friend had retweeted Charlie Sheen : “I’m looking to hire a #winning INTERN with #TigerBlood.” Cullen clicked the link just out of curiousity, but, to her, the offer sounded awesome.
The full-time position is a paid summer internship with the former “Two and a Half Men” star.
“I’m very interesting in the power of social media, and the job description sounds amazing to me,” Cullen said. “Being Charlie Sheen’s intern would be the learning experience of a lifetime and it would undoubtedly jump-start my career.”
The Sandusky native is in her junior year of college, and is double majoring in public relations and advertising, with a minor in marketing.
In 75 characters or less, which is less than a Twitter post, Cullen had to explain why she would be good for the job. She wrote “I’m a tigress, social media guru, and educated in PR/AD/MKTG.”
And that was just the first round of the application process. Next, Cullen had to submit a formal resume. For round three, applicants had to answer a question in a 2-minute video. Watch her video here: http://bit.ly/fFS09x
Cullen said she heard the search has been narrowed down to 250 contestants and more than 82,000 people applied.
Sheen became an instant star on Twitter, after a series of bizarre interviews that popularized his now-signature phrases like “tiger blood,” “Adonis DNA” and, of course, “winning.”
