Ashton Kutcher’s offering face-to-face career advice to budding and struggling professionals for just $5 an hour, according to E! News.

The “Two and a Half Men” actor recently created a profile on popexpert, a website that allows users to video chat with experts in just about every field, from yoga to tech. He goes by Christopher Kutcher on the site (Ashton is his middle name), and is offering hourlong sessions in career mentoring, marketing, branding and social media.

More artistically inclined students can sign up for face-to-face courses in acting and producing.

Popexpert’s charging just $5 for the first session with Kutcher and $10 for any followups. Unfortunately, he has no upcoming availability — perhaps because he recently got a real-world job as Lenovo’s product engineer — and interested pupils, or just super fans, have to sign up for the waiting list.

Hmm…

Is Kutcher as kind as he seems, or is this a very clever marketing scheme by popexpert? Maybe both. And how many ladies (and gents) more interested in one-upping Mila Kunis than moving up in life will show up to their sessions totally nakey?

RYOT NOTE from Lola

Video chatting is an extremely useful tool in personal and professional relationships; however, it’s important to be weary of who you interact with online, and how.  A Thin Line teaches young people to navigate the digital world safely and kindly, tackling subjects like sexting, social media, cyber-bullying and online dating.
