In 1853, I took a job at the Pennsylvania Railroad and worked as the assistant and telegrapher to Thomas Scott. Later, I got promoted to the role of Superintendent 3 years later
  • While working at the railroad company, Carnegie began making investments.
  • I left the company in 1865 to focus on other business interests, which included Keystone Bridge company. By the next decade, I created a company named Carnegie Steel, due to my interest in steel. My business tactic was called the "vertical integration", which meant that my owned everything that was needed in order for someone to create steel. The company used the Bessemer Process, which meant that they melted iron until the carbon process came out. With that, that is how steel is formed.
