Aspiring Intern Applies With a Lego Version of Herself

As you apply for summer internships, you’ve probably gotten a ton of advice that all centers around one concept: it’s okay to be creative with your resume, as long as you keep it professional.

Leah, an aspiring account service intern, has taken the concept of a creative resume to a new level by sending employers a LEGO version of herself in a packet that explains her skill set and experience. 


When employers and career counselors everywhere are emphasizing the importance of professionalism, you may be wondering why someone, especially someone who’s exploring the field of account management, would take such a big risk.

“I wanted a fun way to stand out to agencies and get my resume out of the trash can,” Leah explained in a photo gallery on Imgur. While we’re not sure how agencies are reacting, Leah is certainly standing out to the online community. Her photo of the finished product has already gotten more than 2,000 comments on Reddit!


What do you think, collegiettes? Is Leah’s resume super creative… or a little too crazy? Let us know in the comments section below!
