SILICON VALLEY, CA (CNN) - The homeless Laredoan that went viral after he was seen on the streets of California begging for a new opportunity has landed a job.

According to CNN, 26-year-old David Casarez, a college student from Laredo, Texas hopped off the plane in Silicon Valley, California with a dream and his resume.

However, David was struggling to find work, as he spent about a year living in his van.

The 26-year-old made national headlines after he was seen on the streets begging for a job instead of money.

David held a sign saying “Homeless hungry 4 success, take a resume.”
After receiving national attention for his witty sign, David’s days of being unemployed are finally over.

David tweeted on Tuesday, “I am pleased to announce that I have accepted a position as a Software Engineer with @WhiteFoxDefense! I would like to thank @AustenAllred with @LambdaSchool, and @SkilledInc for their support throughout this process! #ThankYou”
David says the company is working on some big projects and he is looking forward to being a part of it.

Congratulations to the fellow Laredoan and we wish him nothing but the best!
