Mar 28 2014 - 11:38am

Meet Leah the Lego-lover. She's looking for an internship at an ad agency, and her résumé is like nothing you've seen before. "I wanted a fun way to stand out to agencies and get my résumé out of the trash can — I've always loved Lego, and I created this set to highlight my creativity, skills, and initiative!" she wrote on Reddit [1]. "It's something I hope to be able to send out along with a job application."

Talk about catching the recruiter's eye. She might be looking for an internship, but someone get this girl a job stat. (If you're feeling inspired, check out other crazy-creative résumé ideas [2].)

"I've only made two sets so far. This is really only for agencies that are dream opportunities, but I tried to customize each one based on the agency's branding and colors."

"One agency specifically requested a persuasive advertisement, so I made an 11x17 poster to 'advertise' my miniscale me as well as my skills!"
