Man Goes to the Street With Placard in Search of Job, Hands Out His CVs to People, Gets Over 200 Offers

In another story, a young man, David Casarez, went all out in 2018 to put a stop to his longtime unemployment. Before job hunting, the 26-year-old had failed at starting his own tech company with his bachelor’s degree in management information systems.

Following David’s failure, he slept in a bus park on a bench in Mountain View, California.

His situation was really that bad that he did not even have a roof over his end, Goal Cast reports.

In addition to the sign, he printed many CVs and went on the road. When a driver, Jasmine Scofield, saw him, he was impressed.

With David’s permission, he took his photo and posted it on social media. The driver was impressed that the homeless man was not on the street begging but hunting for jobs.

Later in the day, the unemployed man got more than 200 job offers from different companies. When his story was reshared on Instagram by @globalpositivenews, it gathered a lot of comments.
