Steve Jobs' error-filled CV going to auction

Steve Jobs' error-filled CV from more than four decades ago is going up for auction next month.

The late co-founder of Apple - who tragically passed away in October 2011 aged 56 after a battle with cancer - started up the technology giant in 1976, and just three years earlier he was applying for jobs in the industry.

As reported by The Guardian, the single page application form could fetch around $50,000, and comes complete with spelling and punctuation mistakes.

According to Boston auction house RR Auction, his name is listed as 'Steve jobs', while he put his address down as 'reed college', which was the Oregan college he briefly attended.

Under the Special Abilities section, Jobs wrote: "Tech or design engineer. digital.*from Bay near Hewitt-Packard (sic)".

He also added that he had a driver's license at the time, but claimed his access to transportation was "possible, but not probably", and that he didn't have a phone.

The document doesn't reveal what role he was applying for, although three years later Jobs founded Apple with his friend Steve Wozniak.

The auction will also feature two other items from Jobs' life, included a signed Mac OS X technical manual - valued at $25,000 - and a signed newspaper clipping from 2008 ($15,000) including a photo of the late tech innovator and the headline: "New, faster iPhone will sell for $199."
