Homeless man's job hunt goes viral. Jeannette Reyes reports during Action News Mornings on July 30, 2018. (WPVI)

A homeless web designer is closer to finding a job thanks to social media and his determination despite his current situation.

A woman snapped a photo of David Casarez on a street corner in San Jose, California, holding a sign that read: "Homeless. Hungry 4 success. Take a resume."

Casarez moved to the Silicon Valley to launch his own tech startup. But he ran out of money and has been sleeping in his car since June.

After the photo of him in a dress shirt and tie with his sign was shared on Twitter, he said he's received more than 200 job offers.

Some of the companies that showed interest in Casarez include Google, Pandora and Netflix.
