Homeless Man Gets Noticed By Major Tech Companies After Photo Holding Resume Goes Viral


By Meredith Ganzman

26-year-old homeless and unemployed web developer David Casarez is doing everything he can to get his resume to stand out, including holding up this sign near a California highway.

David has been homeless for more than a month and has been living out of his car. The Texas A&M University graduate moved to California from Texas with the dreams of starting his own tech company. 

But last month his car was repossessed.

So for now he’s sleeping on park benches while looking for jobs -- but that could all change now that this tweet of David pictured wearing a shirt and tie and handing out resumes has been retweeted and liked more than 50,000 times.

Hundreds of employers from Google, to Bitcoin and Pandora, have since reached out to David about jobs, and he has already lined up a few interviews.
