Knock ’em dead CV’s

Dreaming of ‘that’ job? Want to catch a companies attention?

Well this is one of the ways to do it…
Recently Leah Bowman applied for a vacancy with this…

WOW. I mean WOW! I wish I had thought of this. There is a new trend evolving for creative applicants to stretch their wings out of the old times new roman, monochrome trappings of the traditional CV and to play in to their strengths…the design world. This is just one in a long line of incredible CV’s that are starting to come to the attention of the media and spreading like wildfire through social media. It’s about time, isn’t it? Too long have we had to fill out endless forms and adhere to strict formatting. Who came up with such a rigid CV format anyway?

Leah Lego, an interactive application!

What’s even more incredible about this is Leah put all this effort in for an internship. Not even a full time, salaried, benefit giving vacancy. Unfortunately we do not get to see where she sent this application to but I think they would have been mad to not offer her a proper job.

If this is a sign of the future of applications…Viva the CV revolution!
