The Qualified Candidate Will Possess...

From our vantage point in history it's hard to remember that great names didn't start out so great -- that in the beginning, they had to achieve something and often had to seek out the chance to achive something before they built the reputations by which we know them today.

Which means Leonardo da Vinci tried to get a job in 1482 with Ludovico il Moro, Duke of Milan, and in order to secure work as an armorer and creator of weapons, he submitted a resumé.

He might have wished to have lived a little closer to Venice or Bologna; the printing press was introduced in those cities about 10 years before it became widespread in Milan and would have made creating copies of his resumé a lot easier.
