Can you guess who wrote the first resume?

In 1482, at the age of 30, Italian sculptor and inventor Leonardo da Vinci travelled to Milan to find work. He sent a letter to Ludovico Sforza, the Regent at the time, explaining his many skills. His letter included 11 bullet points stating how he could help the Regent win wars.

For instance, one of his ‘skills’ talked about his inventions: “I have a sort of extremely light and strong bridges, adapted to be most easily carried, and with them you may pursue, and at any time flee from the enemy…”.

And as with many jobseekers, da Vinci didn’t shy away from some embellishment. He wrote: “Again, I have kinds of mortars; most convenient and easy to carry; and with these I can fling small stones almost resembling a storm.”

That letter or document became the first ever resume in history.
