Da Vinci Found to have Created the World's First CV
From Egyptian architects with parchment scrolls with references from Pharoahs to Roman slaves with slates around their necks detailing their credentials, it's clear that Resumes have been around for some time. Probably one of the most famous of these is Leonard da Vinci, who created a stunning resume to send to his future employer, interestingly outlining what da Vinci could do for him, rather than just listing his skills. Of course if he was around now, Da Vinci would have a LinkedIn profile with video links proving his skills and craftsmanship - it was harder to evidence his work back then. But it worked: Sforza brought da Vinci to Milan, where he would stay for 17 years, doing his best work including his painting of The Last Supper.
