Casarez and his story went viral last month, as reported information revealed that he had moved to the Bay Area to find work and resorted to handing resumes out on the street corner. The college graduate was faced with homelessness as he took on any extra work he could find. When people around the country saw the posted video of him dressed for job interviews and handing out resumes, he was soon swarmed with potential job offers looking to give him a chance.
