Up for Grabs: Steve Jobs' Typo-Filled Job Application


In today's technological world, which Steve Jobs had a hand in creating, it's hard to imagine someone writing, "None" next to an entry for "phone" on a job application.

A 1973 job application filled out by the late Apple co-founder Steve Jobs is expected to sell for $50,000 (£36,000).

This remarkable employment questionnaire reveals Jobs's early aspiration to work in the fledgling tech industry, which he would soon revolutionise forever, the listing reads.

And next to "Special Abilities" and "Interests", he writes "electronics tech or design engineer. digital.", and adds that he is "from Bay Area near Hewitt-Packard.", in a reference to HP.

Pence KSC visit continues with meeting focused on commercial space
Pence has spent parts of two days on the Coast, landing at Kennedy Space Center's Shuttle Landing Facility on Tuesday. Officials said the administration specifically chose to have it in Florida to focus on commercial space.

With regard to his skills, next to "Computer" and "Calculator", he writes, "yes (design, tech)".

Jobs also wrote that his access to transportation was "possible, but not probable" - and neglected to capitalise his own second name.

After enrolling in 1972, Jobs dropped out of Reed College after six months.

RR Auction, the company putting the job application under the hammer, estimates its worth at more than $50,000. But he stuck around the campus for a year and a half to audit creative courses, including classes on Shakespeare, dance, and calligraphy, according to a news release.

Klaasen and Duminy half-centuries set up T20 decider
As a result, there was little time to get in and while Duminy hit his first ball for four, Klaasen hit his second for six. Set 189 for victory, the Proteas batsmen took to the field and, nearly immediately, the rain started coming down.

And the youngster who would go on to invent the iPhone was also unable to provide a contact number - because he did not have a phone.

"If I had never dropped in on that single calligraphy course in college, the Mac would have never had multiple typefaces or proportionally spaced fonts", Jobs said. In 2011, at the age of 56, Steve Jobs died due to cancer.

In 1976 Jobs and Wozniak formed Apple in the garage of Jobs's home on Crist Drive in Los Altos.

Now that error-filled one-pager is set to go on the block next month as part of a pop culture sale held by RR Auction. It is accompanied with letters of authenticity and bidding runs from March 8 to March 15.
