Before Tom Brady was Tom Brady, he was a sixth-round NFL draft pick that had zero shot of starting for an NFL team or even seeing the field in the regular season. Then Drew Bledsoe got hurt, and the rest was history. But if Bledsoe never went down and Brady’s NFL career didn’t pan out, he had plenty of work experience in other fields.
How do we know this? Because the three-time Super Bowl champion shared a photo of his old resume on Facebook Thursday morning.
“Found my old resume!” Brady (or the person who runs his Facebook account) wrote. “Really thought I was going to need this after the 5th round.”
Thomas E. Brady Jr. took home Academic Achievement honors at the University of Michigan in 1996, 97 and 98. He interned with Merril Lynch as an assistant to a senior sales broker during the summers of 98 and 99 while still in school. If that doesn’t impress you, maybe you’re interested in Brady’s experience as a golf course superintendent and ranger. Or how about that summer he spent helping to build “major commercial and industrial facilities?”
You see, at one point Brady was just another schmuck looking for a job like the rest of us. If you work hard enough, you too can win three Super Bowls and marry the world’s most famous super model.
