The things you have to do to get a job today. Young millennials entering the job market, I suggest you grab pen and paper or have Evernote at the ready before going further, because you could learn a lot from an enterprising Redditor named Leah who put together a rather impressive resume package using Legos in her pursuit of a job in the advertising world.
Not only is her self-promotional collateral well-done and clever, it's also quite well-engineered using only basic Lego pieces. This young woman is clearly going places.
As Leah puts it:
I wanted a fun way to stand out to agencies and get my resume out of the trash can -- I've always loved LEGO and I created this set to highlight my creativity, skills and initiative! It's something I hope to be able to send out along with a job application.
She designed a Lego version of herself, complete with custom instructions on assembling her that also highlight her skills and qualities throughout.
One downside to a Lego resume is that it's harder to duplicate than simply running off another paper copy. She says so far she's only put together two of the Lego Leah sets to send out to her "dream" agencies that she'd most like to work at.
Perhaps the craziest part of this go-getter's application package? She's just looking for an internship.
Are you kidding me? Someone make this young lady a creative director, stat! Or be crushed by her after your competition snaps her up.
