Washington: Several companies approached a homeless man with job offers after he started to hand out resumes instead of begging in order to alleviate himself out of poverty.
He wore a nice shirt, pants and tie and stood on a roadside with a handwritten placard that read “HOMELESS, HUNGRY 4 SUCCESS. TAKE A RESUME.”, reported New York Post.
The homeless man has been identified as David Casarez, who turned out to be a web developer.
After his photo of him holding the aforementioned placard went viral on Twitter he got more than 200 job offers.
“Google reached out to me,” New York Post quoted Casarez as saying.
“A product manager from Bitcoin.com was wondering if I could work remotely of if I want to relocate to Tokyo,” he added.
Casarez who has been living in his car for over a year said that he couldn’t succeed in getting a job in Apple after qualifying for an interview in January. He claimed that the job was filled internally.
Casarez, who did some freelancing in web design and logo design jobs earlier, is an information systems management graduate.
He said that he dressed up nice in order to be presentable to my future employers.
“It was basically a make-or-break moment,” he asserted.
On Saturday in twitter, his photo of him holding a placard and his resume was retweeted over 50,000 times and was liked over 70,000 times.
“I wasn’t expecting that kind of response,” he added.(ANI)
