I applied. For fun and games mostly, to see if I had what it takes to be a social media rockstar for a celeb. The first round was easy, and the second round : a piece of cake. I had all the answers that they were looking for, because I already am a working social media strategist.
So why did I want to be someones intern again? Well, I wanted to see if my level of social skills was on par with the global social rockstars. I had no intention of getting through to the second and third round, but I did and then it became real. I decided to continue this as a social experiment. I won’t lie, there was a part of me that wondered what I would do if I actually got this. Would I quit my job to become Charlie Sheen’s social media intern? And would I leave my job as social media strategist to become someone’s intern? Never. I guess whichever choice I made would’ve sky rocketed my online presence. If I’d said yes, I’d have a surreal job for 8 weeks, get paid in dollars and leave the experience saying ” I was Charlie Sheen’s social media strategist.” I imagine being able to walk into any company after that line 😉 And if I was chosen and I’d said no, it would still work out for me coz I could say “I turned down the offer to be Charlie Sheen’s social media strategist.” I imagine being able to walk into any company after that line too :p This was all going through my head at the time I completed each round, I was thinking… I’m going global baby!
The first round asked my basic details and links to my blog, twitter and other social media profiles. Second round was tricky; I had to write a #winning line describing why Charlie Sheen should choose me (in 75 characters or less). I can’t remember what I wrote, but it got me through to round 3.
