A five-decade-old handwritten and signed job application submitted by Steve Jobs is soon going up for virtual auction by Charterfields Ltd. in London. At the time of the application, Jobs had just dropped out of Reed College in Oregon where he was studying English Literature. It is not known to which company Jobs was applying, nor the position, but the 1973 application gives us a glimpse into the life of the man before he founded Apple three short years later. In the application, Jobs highlights his experience with “computers and calculators” and special abilities in “electronic tech or design engineer digital.”
This Steve Jobs handwritten job application has been verified by the experts at Beckett Authentication Services – meaning it is absolutely the genuine article.
