Tom Brady’s Resume: Could Have Worked at Merrill Lynch

If the Patriots hadn’t drafted Tom Brady in the sixth round of the 2000 draft, the future Hall of Famer could have been a broker at Merrill Lynch, or maybe managed a golf course.

Those alternate professions came to light Thursday, when Brady posted a copy of his resume on his Facebook page, noting that after the fifth round of the draft — when he still hadn’t been selected — he thought he might need it.

Here’s the resume:

The resume notes that Brady interned at Merrill in the summers of 1998 and 1999 while a student at the University of Michigan. He notes on the resume that he was “exposed to upper-level management and company strategy” and “researched stock and mutual fund reports while updating client portfolios.”

In the summer of ’99, Brady’s resume notes that he was also an assistant clubhouse manager at the University of Michigan golf course and a course ranger and starter at the Polo Fields Gold and Country Club.

Brady has long been mentioned as a potential TV commentator or even candidate for public office when he retires. But if he’s able to dust off that old resume, who knows? Maybe he’ll have a future managing mutual funds after all.
