- The 1973 application letter written by former CEO of Apple, Steve Job, has sold for $222,400 (GHC1,285,562) at an online auction
- In the letter, Steve stated what he is good at that makes him a better candidate for the work he was applying for

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.
The handwritten job application letter he wrote in 1973 has been auctioned at a whopping sum of $222,400 by Charterfields Auctions, Hypebeast reports.
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.
Hypebeast gathered that the year the application was written almost tallies with when the former Apple CEO started his career at Atari Inc in 1974. Financial Express said that the bidding which sold was first opened in February.
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.
Meanwhile, YEN.com.gh earlier reported that Twitter co-founder and chief executive officer, Jack Dorsey, sold his first-ever tweet for a record $2.9m.
The tweet which read "just setting up my Twitter" was first published on the American technology entrepreneur's page on Tuesday, March 21, 2006.
The post was purchased using ether cryptocurrency, the world's second-largest virtual currency by market capitalisation.
