In order to come out from the clutches of adversity, a homeless man started to hand out resumes instead of begging and soon numerous companies approached him with job offers.
According to the New York Post, he was wearing a nice shirt, pants and tie; stood on a roadside with a handwritten placard that read “HOMELESS, HUNGRY 4 SUCCESS. TAKE A RESUME.”

On Saturday in twitter, his photo of holding a placard and his resume was retweeted over 50,000 times and was liked over 70,000 times.
The homeless man has been identified as David Casarez and is a web developer by profession. After the photo of him holding the aforementioned placard went viral on Twitter, he was offered more than 200 jobs from several companies. “I wasn’t expecting that kind of response,” he said.
According to the report, Carsarez said, tech giant Google too reached out to him saying “A product manager from Bitcoin.com was wondering if I could work remotely or if I want to relocate to Tokyo.”
For over a year, Casarez has been living in his car and he said that he was not able to get a job in Apple, after qualifying for an interview in January and claimed that the job was filled internally.
Casarez who is an information systems management graduate has tried his hands in freelancing in web design and logo design jobs earlier.
While talking to NYP, he said that he dressed up real nice in order to be presentable to his future employers. “It was basically a make-or-break moment,” he asserted.
As of now, he is definitely enjoying his moments of opportunities.
