DIS Alumna Innovatively Lands Summer Internship

DIS alumna from fall 2013, Leah Bowman, Northwestern University, was chosen to intern this summer in the Account Management department at Energy BBDO, along with 15 other interns.

Leah’s application was nothing close to conventional. To capture the attention of her employers, Leah built a LEGO resume – a replica of herself with an attached application which included a headline that stated, ‘Build the Perfect Account Service Intern!’ which mentioned her attributes as a listener, people person, and multitasker. After her story was published on Reddit, Leah shared her thought process behind her LEGO resume.

Not only do we extend our congratulations to Leah, who was given a fantastic opportunity – we applaud her creativity in navigating the job market and her use of unconventional methods in the modern world!
