You’ve been to the Lego store. You’ve watched the Lego movie. But have you seen the Lego résumé?

Last year, college student Leah Bowman created a Lego-themed résumé for an Account Services internship. Using Lego Digital Designer, Bowman created a Lego version of herself and placed it on her résumé.

I’ve always been pretty good at anything I’ve attempted, except for the time I tried to play softball. Luckily, I never had my heart set on becoming a professional softball player, but I also never had my heart set on much of anything in particular.

My name is Juliet Rocco, and I’m a senior at Rochester Institute of Technology studying new media marketing with a minor in psychology. I’m graduating this year in May and look forward to finding full-time employment in the field of advertising.

A lot of people give me a quizzical look when I tell them what my major is. In its simplest form, new media marketing is a combination of classical marketing, internet marketing and graphic design. I decided to throw psychology into the mix because I think it’s important as a marketer to understand how people think and why they do certain things. Read the rest of this entry
