(RNN) – A homeless web developer in California hoped to make his CV available to one person only.
Now David Casarez receives hundreds of e-mails, some with messages of support and others asking for his resume.
It started last Friday when Casarez stood at a crossroads in the San Francisco Bay Area holding a sign. He held a shield, but he did not ask for money.
Casarez & # 39; s sign read: "Homeless, hungry 4 Success, take a resume."
A woman saw him holding the sign and asking for his CV. Then she asked if she could take a picture of him and his CV to share on social media.
Since Friday it has been retweeted more than 100,000 times.
Today I saw this young homeless man asking people to take a resume instead of asking for money. If someone in Silicon Valley could help, that would be amazing. Please RT, so we can help David! pic.twitter.com/ewoE3PKFx7

"I knew it would be posted on social networks, I did not know it in the air would go that way, "said Casarez KNTV. "I try not to take any money, I really just want a job opportunity, that's all I ask."
Casarez, a 26-year-old Texas A & M alumnus, told local media that he had moved to California in September 2017 with hopes to start a startup.
He had saved a few months' pay and decided to live in his van until he could rent a job for rent.
Unfortunately, he ran out of money and ended up losing his van in June. Since then he sleeps in parks.
Nevertheless, Casarez gets up. On Saturday, the woman who tweeted the photo told him that Google, Netflix, LinkedIn and other companies had already contacted him.
Google, Netflix, LinkedIn and many other companies have already reached?
