Homeless College Graduate Entertains Hundreds of Job Offers After Handing Out Resume at Busy Intersection
David Casarez was seen holding a sign that read: "Homeless. Hungry 4 success. Take a resume.”
A homeless California college graduate is fielding hundreds of job offers after handing out his resume at a busy intersection.
David Casarez, a 26-year-old graduate of Texas A&M University in 2014, held up a sign that read "Homeless. Hungry 4 success. Take a resume" at a stoplight on the corner of El Camino and San Antonio in Mountain View, California.
Passerby Jasmine Scofield noticed him Friday afternoon, and after chatting with him and taking his resume, posted the document to Twitter.
It quickly went viral, with both companies looking to hire and people in similar situations reaching out.
Casarez has since been flooded with at least 200 job offers from major names in tech, he said in an interview with the New York Post.
Scofield tweeted that she has since been in touch with Casarez, who said his dream was to come to the Silicon Valley to be successful in the tech industry.
"He's sleeping in parks and still trying to get freelance work, interviews and applications in," she wrote, explaining that he has a computer and brings it to Starbucks and other places with free Wi-Fi to search for jobs and work on remote projects.
Scofield later explained that she was inspired to share his story since she too realizes how hard it is to make it in Silicon Valley.
"After three years, I've finally landed something stable that’ll help my career," she said. "I understand his pain, which is why I was determined to help."
