Here’s concrete (or maybe plastic) proof that internship hopeful Leah Bowman’s LEGO-inspired resume wasn’t an April Fools’ prank, regardless of the timing of the initial news
stories about it.
Bowman, whose creative resume drew attention on Reddit, posted two photos to her Imgur account
Monday declaring that she has been hired as an account management intern at EnergyBBDO:
A spokesman for the firm told Advertising Age
that Bowman will start in late June as one of 16 summer interns.
In her original Reddit post
in late March, Bowman talked about just how competitive the agency internship game is. That it took Bowman more than a month to snag a position at a firm seems to prove it. She got national media attention for her LEGO self (which was even branded as LEAH, with a LEGO-style logo), and it still took her several weeks to nail down a position.
It really is tough out there.
