Default Homeless guy holds sign and gives out resumes

For those trying to break into the field and say they've literally tried everything...

https://nypost.com/2018/07/28/homele...of-job-offers/

Quote:
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.
