Man Applies For Jobs By Sending His Own LEGO Mini Figure As A CV

An artist who wanted to make his curriculum vitae stand out decided to posts his in the form a mini-figure that resembles his own likeness, holding a laptop in one hand and a miniature custom printed CV.

Andy Morris's packaging is expertly designed to appear like the exclusive LEGO figures normally reserved for the likes of ComicCon, while also featuring design elements unique to Andy's work.

The Lego figure is even posted to the potential employer in a box urging them to 'unwrap your newest employee'.

The recent design graduate from the University of South Wales hopes that this novel approach to his CV will land him an opportunity with a firm mirroring his creative ambition.

"Everything in life should be fun, even applying for jobs," he said.

"While conventional CVs are great for conveying past accomplishments, they're limited on what personality, creativity and innovation you can inject into them.

"Along comes my figure, hopefully demonstrating the above, plus, who doesn't want to receive some LEGO through the post and hire the person taking such a novel approach.

"I have only just started to send the figures out this week, so fingers-crossed."

His career as an artist is defined by his trademark use of toys, injecting a dose of youthful light-heartedness into his art and earning him fame from people of all ages.
