Steve Jobs' Job Application May Unlock Inspiration for iPhone Creation

Steve Jobs' Job Application May Unlock Inspiration for iPhone Creation

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 job application filled by Apple's late co-founder and CEO Steve Jobs is reportedly up for an auction and is expected to fetch a whopping $50,000, which translates to approximately Rs 3,238,000 (that's about 50 iPhone X models).

The single-page CV lists the entrepreneur's name Steven Jobs, his date of birth as 24 February 1955 and his place of study as "Reed College" in the USA state of Oregon, The Guardian reports.

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.

Under "Skills", next to "Computer" and "Calculator", he writes "yes (design, tech)". His name, Steven Jobs, is listed along the top. Steve Jobs' time at Reed College was short, as he dropped out after only six months in order to help his parents save on money.

Written three years before he founded Apple with Steve Wozniak and Ronald Wayne, Jobs does say he has a driver's license, but adds that his access to transportation is "possible, but not probable". He has further described his "Special Abilities" as "electronics tech or design engineer. digital. -from Bay near Hewitt-Packard". 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.

Jobs died of cancer at age 56 in 2011.

RR Auction will list the item during a sale that takes place between 8 - 15 March.

"Steve Jobs was a notoriously hard signer...and his autograph is incredibly scarce among contemporary figures", RR Auction noted.

The full collection will also include documents signed by pop culture icons including Jimi Hendrix, The Beatles, J.K Rowling, Matt Groening, Allen Ginsberg and Bob Marley.
