Homeless Man Hands Out Resume on Corner, 200 Companies Call

Homeless man David Casarez holds sign offering his resume rather than asking for money in Mountain View California

No one was hiring.

He had a good job as a web developer at General Motors in Austin, but cashed out his 401k to move to Silicon Valley to launch his own tech startup.

Casarez tried freelancing and landed a few web design and logo design gigs, but it wasn't enough. His auto was repossessed last month, which is when he began sleeping in the park. Since then, he's been sleeping in a park, according to local outlet KNTV. That's when he began to think of a more innovative way of getting his name out. "I grabbed a resume and asked him what he did", she says. You're gonna do what you need to do to survive.

Casarez had saved up some money, and planned to live off of his van to save money on rent.

A homeless man stood on a corner, not begging for a handout but handing out resumes. After a woman shared a photo of Casarez with his sign, as well as his resume, on social media, he has been inundated with people trying to help.

"Today I saw this young homeless man asking for people to take a resume rather than asking for money", she tweeted.

The tweet has more than 118,000 retweets and 186,000 likes. 'I'm in shock. I wasn't expecting that kind of response'.

Casarez says he got plenty of nods of approval from passing drivers.

His inbox was flooded with messages of support and opportunities. By Saturday, Casarez was astonished to receive over 200 job offers. "So many other companies". Pandora. A bunch of startups, ' Casarez said. He added, "A product manager from Bitcoin.com was wondering if I could work remotely or if I want to relocate to Tokyo". "So I figured I could post it on Facebook and Twitter", Scofield, who works in finance and tech, told CNN.

Casarez said the outpouring of support has given him renewed hope after nearly running out of options. This is his last opportunity and he's going to shoot for it.

Casarez told CBS News that he was hopeful something positive would come from all of the attention, and tells others in a similar situation to keep their heads up.
