Steve Jobs' 1973 job application up for sale

Updated 2018-02-24 13:21:00 Xinhua

A job application filled out by the late Apple co-founder Steve Jobs will go up for auction in March, and is expected to fetch more than 50,000 U.S. dollars.

Dating back to 1973, the application was filled out with a handful of simple phrases containing spelling errors. Yet it gives a glimpse into the interests and aspirations of young Jobs before he broke into the tech industry.

In the form, Jobs listed his special abilities as "electronics tech or design engineer," and wrote "yes" next to computer skills.

He responded "yes" to the question of whether the applicant had a driver's license but when asked if he had access to a car, he wrote "possible but not probable."

The inventor of the iPhone wrote "none" next to the column "Phone."

It is not known what position Jobs was applying for, or whether he got that job.

Jobs worked as a technician for game publisher Atari before he founded Apple with Steve Wozniak in 1976.

During his tenure at Apple, the tech giant created some of the world's most well-known products, including the iPhone, the Mac computer and iTunes.

The application will be up for auction from March 8 to 15 at the auction house RR Auction in Boston, in the U.S. state of Massachusetts.
