Steve Jobs' error-filled CV expected to fetch £35000


The one-page document dates back to 1973, three years before the launch of Apple, and shows Jobs' to-the-point yet error-laden responses to a series of employment questions, Boston's RR Auction said in its listing published on Thursday.

AN ANCIENT JOB APPLICATION belonging to former Apple CEO Steve Jobs is going up for auction next month and is expected to go for upwards of $50,000. Written for an unnamed position, the future Apple founder details his name as "Steven jobs", and address as "reed college"; an OR college he briefly attended.

It remains unclear what company Jobs was applying to.

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. Though Jobs responded on the form that he had a driver's licence, he said his access to transportation was "possible, but not probable".

Jobs enrolled at Reed in the fall of 1972, but dropped out after six months.

Instead, Scott said he is interested in making it harder for people who are temporarily committed to obtain a gun. He had the guts to be there when Governor Scott did not", Nelson told a group of Democratic state senators.

After attending high school in Cupertino, California, Jobs went to study at Reed College in Portland, Oregon, but dropped out after a term.

The CV was crafted a few years before Jobs and friend Steve Wozniak made a decision to found Apple Inc.

In 1976 Jobs and Wozniak formed Apple in the garage of Jobs's home on Crist Drive in Los Altos. Other items available for bid include a signed newspaper clipping detailing a "New, faster iphone" that will "sell for $199" (those were the days) with an estimated worth of $15,000, and a signed Mac OS X technical manual from 2001, estimated at $25,000.

The items are part of a dedicated pop culture auction, which also features a pair of Rene Mancini pumps owned by Audrey Hepburn, and a complete set of first edition Harry Potter books signed by JK Rowling. Jobs died of pancreatic cancer in 2011 aged 56. It is accompanied with letters of authenticity and bidding runs from March 8 to March 15.
