The one-page pre-Apple employment questionnaire is among a collection of rare items signed by Jobs being sold by Boston's RR Auction announced Thursday. Though Jobs responded on the form that he had a driver's licence, he said his access to transportation was "possible, but not probable".
A 1973 job application handwritten by a teenaged Steve Jobs, and rife with mistakes, is expected to fetch at least $55,000 (£39,000) when it goes to auction next month. He remained on campus for the next year or so, during which he would have written this job application.
It's not known whether the job application was successful. "At the bottom, he describes his 'Special Abilities" as "electronics tech or design engineer. digital. -from Bay near Hewitt-Packard [sic]". "With regard to skills, he scribbled "(design, tech)" under two sections titled "Computer" and "Calculator".

Moreover, Chickasaw Cap Management Limited Liability has 0.02% invested in The Walt Disney Company (NYSE: DIS ) for 8,650 shares. Institutional investors have recently bought and sold shares of the stock. 95 funds opened positions while 563 raised stakes.
With an estimated value of about $50,000, the one-page application from 1973, complete with spelling and punctuation errors, lists his name as "Steven jobs" and address as "reed college", the OR college he attended briefly, Boston auction house RR Auction said.
Jobs was born in 1955 to a Syrian Arab father and an American mother of Swiss-German descent, who put him up for adoption in San Francisco. In 1976, Jobs and Wozniak set out on their own and founded Apple, introducing the personal computer to the masses. The Daily Telegraph says he didn't secure a technical role until he joined Atari as a technician in 1974. Four years later, he teamed up with Steve Wozniak to launch Apple, the company which analysts believe could soon boast a stock market value of more than $1 trillion.
The sale is being handled next month by RR Auction, and also includes a newspaper article about Apple signed by Jobs, and signed OG Mac OS X manual. Jobs died of cancer in 2011 at the age of 56. It is accompanied with letters of authenticity and bidding runs from March 8 to March 15.
