A young man who ended up homeless in California decided to take matters into his own hands and asked for an opportunity instead of money at an intersection Friday.
A Twitter post by a Good Samaritan has gone viral giving the homeless unemployed man from Mountain View a chance. 26-year-old David Cesarez moved to the Bay area last September, but he unfortunately underestimated the cost of living.
Cesarez also didn’t realize how hard it would be to find employment, despite having a college degree and three years experience as a software developer. The young man had dreams of launching a start up company, but that soon came to an end when he had no resources left.
Today I saw this young homeless man asking for people to take a resume rather than asking for money. If anyone in the Silicon Valley could help him out, that would be amazing. Please RT so we can help David out! pic.twitter.com/ewoE3PKFx7

Cesarez was living in his van until he could no longer afford the payments and lost it in June. Since then he’s been sleeping in a park in the area.
"This is my make it or break it moment…I have to do something crazy…"
This is when he decided to take a bold move and stood at an intersection in Mountain View asking for help. Cesarez made a sign saying, "Homeless..Hungry 4 Success..Take A Resume."
Since the Twitter post, Cesarez has been contacted by several companies. "I knew it would be posted on social media…I I didn’t know it would blow up like this. I’m trying not to take any money…I really do just want a job opportunity…that’s all I’m asking…"
