Everyone needs to start somewhere … In 1973, legendary entrepreneur and Apple co-founder Steve Jobs was looking for a job. He had already dropped out of Reed College by then, but there were still 3 years before Jobs would forever change the computer industry by founding Apple.
Besides, 18-year-old Jobs needed a car. As stated in the resume auctioned at RRAuction (the document sold for $ 174,757), his access to transportation was “possible but unlikely.”
Steve listed computer and calculator skills as his skills, and wrote about his field of interest “electronics maintenance or design engineer.”
♥ BY TOPIC: Steve Jobs pronounced the word “Boom” 313 times during his performances from 1996 to 2010 (video)…
At that time, the future iPhone creator did not even have a phone.
Here’s what the resume looked like:
Three years after filing this document, Jobs will team up with Steve Wozniak to found Apple and launch the Apple I computer, which will bring him his first success. It will be followed by the Apple II, then the Macintosh, and a few decades later the iPhone, from which you are now, quite possibly, reading these lines.
Before founding Apple, Jobs traveled to India and also spent some time in a commune in Oregon. These facts of his biography sound much richer than working on a computer and calculator in his youth, right?
The rest is history.
