A Silicon Valley homeless man has received many job offers after a photo of him holding a sign that read “Homeless, hungry 4 success, take a resume” went viral on social media.
“I’m just completely blown out, receiving so many e-mails of support,” Casarez previously told NBC Bay area.
Casarez moved to the Bay Area from Laredo looking for a job in tech. He said he ran out of money and lost his car, which was also his home. Casarez then spent his nights sleeping at a Mountain View park and his days trying to get the attention of any employer he could.
The resilience paid off.
