A 1973 job application written by an 18-year-old Steve Jobs, co-founder of Apple, lists his “special abilities” of “electronic tech or design engineer, digital.” Jobs also listed his skills in computers and calculators and noted he didn’t own a car. That handwritten application on now-yellowed paper turned out to be pretty valuable than any first job: It recently sold for $222,400 in a London, England, auction.  Jobs filled out the application in hopes of landing a job after dropping out of Reed College, which he attended for about six months. A year later, Jobs joined Atari as a technician. He and Steve Wozniak created Apple in 1976.
