Steve Job, the late former CEO of Apple, is in the news again and this time around it is for something he did almost 50 years ago.

It should be noted that Chaterfields said the document was really handwritten by Jobs. The letter, however, does not state what company he wanted to work at.

The letter was also reportedly drafted around the time Steve dropped out of school and stopped formal learning at Reed College in Portland, Oregon.

The auction company said that the letter showcases the man’s experience with computers and calculators and his special skills in areas such as electronic tech or design engineering.

Another important thing to note is that this would not be the first time the letter is being auctioned. In 2018, it sold for $175,000 (N66,683,750).
