Homeless people go viral to pass CVs instead of asking for money



A California homeless man receives a flood of support after posting a photo of him with a unique sign on Twitter.

Jasmine Scofield saw 26-year-old David Casarez holding a sign saying "Homeless, hungry 4 success, take a resume". She tweeted his photo and a copy of his CV and asked for any hints. "Please RT, so we can help David!" She said.

Since Friday, the tweet has been retweeted and liked more than 100,000 times.

Casarez graduated from Texas A & M University with a degree in Management Information Systems (MIS). After spending a year with General Motors on General Motors, he left his job and moved from Texas to California to realize his dream of a startup.

"I know that Silicon Valley is the place to be if you want to compete with the big dogs," he said over the phone.

Casarez had saved some money, and planned to live on his van to save money on rent. When his startup plans went through and he still had 4 months of savings left, he started looking for a job.

He was interviewed to work for Apple, but was forwarded for the position. Casarez has gone through his savings despite his free work, and his van has been taken back. At that moment, he thought of a more innovative way of releasing his name.

"I call it the power of the broke mentality, you will do what you need to do to survive, that mentality has come," said Casarez.

Casarez did not expect the support that had come out when he emanated. He first stood with his resumes at an intersection in Mountain View, California.

"I thought if I could get a person to take my resume that would give me hope," he said.

Instead, he has hundreds of emails with support messages, requests for his resume and job opportunities and offers to accommodate him. He has received news from around the world, including Saudi Arabia, Tokyo and Toronto.

The news is coming in so fast that Casarez can no longer keep up.

"At first I tried to answer, but I fell behind so I try to make sure everyone responds in a timely manner."

People also have their support on Twitter for Casarez and others experiencing unemployment.

Casarez hopes his story will be shared by others who are in the same situation brings up their hopes.

"Never give up, an opportunity is sure to find your way, keep your head up and do not be afraid to get up, do not be scared to be that pinhead in a haystack," he said.
