Homeless Guy Hands Out Resumes And Gets Hundreds Of Job Offers
David Casarez, 26, woke up from his park bench in Silicon Valley and decided he needed a change...
Everyone can probably agree that finding a job is no easy feat - it can sometimes take several months to land the perfect opportunity. David Casarez moved to Silicon Valley to pursue his dream of being a web developer but was met with tough times.
After applying for job after job for months with no success - Friday morning, July 27th, David woke up on the park bench he had been sleeping on and decided it was time for a change. He went to the nearest FedEx and printed out copies of his resume, wrote out a sign saying "Homeless. Hungry 4 Success. Take A Resume" and headed out to the street to see if his new plan would work.
Not too long thereafter, Jasmine Scofield a Payroll Analyst and Strategic Business Partner at Electronic Arts, drove past him on her way to work. Scofield said this in an interview with Kron, a local news station, "He came to Silicon Valley with a dream to be successful in tech and has a lot to offer the community, he's sleeping in parks and still trying to get freelance work, interviews and applications in." Scofield sympathized with Casarez and asked if she could take his picture to post online. Casarez agreed and the results were incredible.
Since then, the post has been retweeted over 129,000 times and David has received over 200 job offers. Some of those offers include top brands like Google, Apple, and Bitcoin. We wonder which one David will choose.
Thanks, Jasmine Scofield, for reminding us that there truly is hope and goodness in this world.
