Homeless man receives 200 job offers

Unemployed Web developer David Casarez has been sleeping on a park bench in Mountain View, California. He lived in his van for a year, until it was repossessed. He applied for a job at Apple, but it was filled internally. So when he woke up on his bench recently, he put on his tie to look presentable and stood with a handwritten sign on a highway median. Here's what it said.

A passerby took this photo and it went Viral on Twitter. Within 24 hours, he'd received more than 200 job offers. "Even Google reached out to me," he said. So did Pandora and a bunch of start-ups. He noted that a product manager from Bitcoin wondered if he'd like to work remotely or relocate in Tokyo.
