LEGO Resume Is The Latest Attempt To Stand Out In The Ad World
Aspiring account executive creates a miniature version of herself as a way to get noticed.
- 28 march 2014
Leah is an aspiring account executive who wanted to make an impression with her resume, which is why she decided to build it entirely out of LEGO. The scaled-down, building brick version of herself comes in a small box, along with an introduction letter that reads “Build the perfect Account Service intern.”
Not only did her Lego resume recently make it onto the front page of Reddit, but it also proves that you don’t have to be a designer to be come up with a creative job application.
“I wanted a fun way to stand out to agencies and get my résumé out of the trash can,” she notes in a photo gallery on Imgur. “I’ve always loved LEGO and I created this set to highlight my creativity, skills and initiative.”
One Reddit user, austinmiles, even photoshopped Leah’s Lego self into an office setting with the caption “You’ll fit right in in the agency world.” The chances of Leah hearing back for an “agency of her dreams” are significantly higher thanks to her original idea, and all the media attention that followed.
