Homeless man hands out resumes, gets hundreds of job offers

On Friday morning, homeless web developer David Casarez woke from his park bench in Mountain View, Calif., put on a nice shirt and tie, and carried his hand-written cardboard sign to a nearby highway median.

“HOMELESS,” the sign read.

“HUNGRY 4 SUCCESS. TAKE A RESUME.”

It turned out to be the perfect job search strategy.

A passerby’s photo of him standing on the median holding the sign soon went viral on Twitter, and by Saturday afternoon, he’d been flooded with more than 200 job offers.

“Google reached out to me,” the astounded 26-year-old told The Post.

“So many other companies. Pandora. A bunch of startups,” he said, speaking by phone at a Starbucks near where he’d first gone begging — literally — for work.

“A product manager from Bitcoin.com was wondering if I could work remotely of if I want to relocate to Tokyo,” he said, with wonder in his voice as he scrolled through the offers.

“But tonight, I’ll be back on my bench in Rengstorff Park.”

Casarez grew up in the border town of Laredo, Tx.

He earned a bachelors in management information systems from Texas A&M University, landed a good web developer job at General Motors in Austin, but then cashed out his 401-K and drove to Silicon Valley to pursue the dream of his own tech startup — only to run out of cash in June.

"cashed out his 401-K and drove to Silicon Valley to pursue the dream of his own tech startup "

Got to admire his risk taking and desire to start his own company, but maybe shouldn't have picked the most expensive place to live in the US though.
