The CEO of Tesla and SpaceX, Elon Musk, is now the richest man in the world. However, before he became the king of the technology world, he was working odd jobs as he wasn’t sure what he wanted to do in life.
Also, were you aware of the fact that he was rejected for a role at Netscape which eventually led him to start Zip2 – the web software company which was the reason behind his success in becoming a millionaire.
A Twitter user took to the microblogging website and shared an old picture of the billionaire entrepreneur and wrote, ‘In 1995, @elonmusk wanted to work with an Internet company.’
He further wrote that Elon Musk had applied to work at Netscape, which is an American computer services company, after he graduated from college. However, he did not get the job and so, he started his own Internet company named Zip2 since ‘he wasn’t able to get a job anywhere,’ explained the Twitter user.
Elon responded to the statement on Twitter and wrote that he could get a job back in the ’90s but not at an Internet company because there were not too many of those back then.
‘I could get a job, just not at an Internet company (weren’t many back then),’ Elon Musk wrote.
According to an earlier published CNBC report, Elon Musk had tried to get a job at Netscape because he was interested in internet. Netscape is the company that created the first web browser, Netscape Navigator.
‘I actually tried hanging out in the [Netscape] lobby, but I was too shy to talk to anyone. So I’m just like standing in the lobby. It was pretty embarrassing,” he had said.
