Homeless man hands out resumes instead of asking for money

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. "I was driving to a restaurant. and I saw David", she says. Apparently, the homeless web developer got his Bachelor of Business Administration degree in Management Informations Systems from Texas A&M University.

Once in California, job prospects would fall through, Casarez told the Post, and he had to move into his 2015 Ford Transit Connect utility van.

"I know that Silicon Valley was the place to be if you want to compete with the big dogs", he said over the phone.

He told NBC Bay Area that he lived in his van after he couldn't afford housing.

Casarez offered thanks on Twitter for the "outpouring" of support.

Within months Casarez had run out of funding for his company and he began looking for employment, only to be greeted by an unwelcoming job market.

Scofield says the last text Casarez sent her said he was getting so many messages it was hard to reply to them all. You're gonna do what you need to do to survive. "This is my make or break moment".

Jasmine Scofield was driving in Mountain View, California, on Friday and spotted a man standing by the side of the road with an unusual sign.

The New York Post reported that 26-year-old David Casarez was flooded with more than 200 jobs offers on Saturday, shortly after the image went viral. "I had an interview with Apple in January, but the job was filled internally", he told the Post.

Austen Allred, CEO of Lambda School-an online program which trains people to be software engineers at no up-front cost-went a step further and took Casarez under his wing.

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.

"Never give up. An opportunity is sure to come your way. Don't be afraid to be that pin drop in a hay stack", he said.
