Educational Background

Steve attended Monti Loma Elementary School; during his school years, he had problems adapting to a traditional classroom, since he resisted figures of authority, so frequently misbehaved, for which he was suspended numerous times. He also had difficulty making friends with his classmates, but still excelled as a student, and even skipped the fifth grade. He then went to Crittenden Middle School where he was bullied, so the family moved to Cupertino, California, where he continued his education at Homestead High School.

Upon matriculation, he enrolled into Reed College in Portland, Oregon, but from which he dropped out after one semester, because he didn’t want to spend his parents’ money on an education that seemed meaningless to him. He returned home, and landed a job at Atari, Inc. as a technician.

Professional Career

In 1976, Steve Jobs’ friend Steve Wozniak completed the design of the Apple I computer, and started to sell it through Apple Computer Company (now Apple, Inc.) which the two co-founded. It was an instant hit that quickly helped them gain enormous popularity and wealth. It led them to create the Apple II computer which was a bigger success, since it was one of the first mass-produced microcomputers.

In 1976, the company’s revenues were $175,000, which grew to $2.7 million within a year, and by the end of the decade, Apple went public after earning $117 million in sales. In 1984 they developed Macintosh, which was the first mass-produced computer with a graphical user interface. It was initially widely acclaimed by the media, until sales dropped due to its slow processing speed and limited range of available software. The next year, Jobs was forced out of the company after a long struggle with its board, and then-CEO John Sculley.

Continued Success

Following his departure from Apple, Steve Jobs took several Apple employees with him to establish another technology company called NeXT, that specialized in producing computers for higher education and business use.

He also worked on the visual effects industry when he funded a part of George Lucas’ Lucasfilm computer division, called Pixar Animation Studios, which produced the first 3D computer-animated feature film “Toy Story” in 1995, and became a major animation studio, producing more than 20 film titles since. In 1997, Apple acquired his company NeXT for $427 million, and Jobs ironically became the CEO of Apple, but which at the time was on the verge of bankruptcy. He then began to collaborate with English designer Jony Ive, and launched a line of products such as Apple Store, iMac, iPhone, iTunes, iPad, and iPod, which made him a billionaire. He resigned from Apple in the summer of 2011, and passed away later that year.
