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 as "electronics maintenance or design engineer."
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.
