A 1973 job application filled out by Apple co-founder and former CEO Steve Jobs has sold for the amazing amount of $222,400 at auction in London (via iMore). The document sold for $175,000 three years ago.
The rare employment application went up for auction on February 24 for a one-month bidding session.
On the application, which was filled out by Jobs in 1973 just after he dropped out of Reed College, Jobs lists “english lit” as his major, and Reed College as his address. He lists “Computer” and “Calculator” as skills, along with “Design” and “Tech,” and says that he has special abilities that include “Electronics” and digital “Tech or Design Engineer.”
The company he was applying to remains a mystery. However, Jobs joined Atari as a technician a year later. Jobs and Steve Wozniak founded Apple in 1976.
The document was listed as being in “very good condition,” with “light staining and old clear tape to the top edge.” The auction included letters and certificates of authenticity.
