Just in time for summer break, LEGOLAND Discovery Center Atlanta is joining with its global counterparts to search for a team of "Mini Apprentices."
LEGOLAND Discovery Center Atlanta is offering the opportunity of a lifetime to a child, to snap up a dream summer job playing with LEGO bricks all day.
Worldwide, each attraction plans to inject a little excitement into summer break while also inviting children and parents to think about the importance of looking to the future from an early age. What better way than by showing them that working can be fun!
The Buckhead attraction is looking to appoint ten young entertainers, model builders and operations experts to join a global team to help run the attraction this summer.
Successful candidates will spend time during their summer holidays on work placements, shadowing job roles such as the unique Master Model Builder – who is responsible for developing new LEGO models, running workshops, and maintaining the Center’s 2 million LEGO bricks! Additional activities that the "Mini Apprentices" may participate in include presenting a Factory Tour – a show highlighting how LEGO bricks are made – and checking the speed of the slides in the soft play area!
Parents should upload their child’s video resume to YouTube and send a the link to Atlanta@legolanddiscoverycenter.com. Applicants will then be selected by the local attraction, with a final team of 10 per Center being crowned with the prestigious title of LEGOLAND Discovery Center "Mini Apprentice!"
A list of top application tips and pointers will be available on the Facebook page, reminding applicants of the importance of dress and appearance in making a first impression and, of course, the skills required by candidates looking for a career in playing with LEGO bricks!
General Manager of LEGOLAND Discovery Center Atlanta, Penda Meftah, said of the search: “While this is ultimately an exceptional opportunity for a group of very lucky children, our search will also highlight the basic steps of the job application process, which is surely something that can never be imparted at too young of an age. There will be a prize for all applications received, rewarding all children for taking part.”
Applications will be accepted through Friday, June 29, with the successful applicants completing work placements during July.
