Instead, he's gotten hundreds of emails with messages of support, requests for his resume, job opportunities and offers to house him.
David Casarez, a homeless web developer, came up with a unique, yet very direct way to lift himself out of poverty.
His luck changed on Friday when a driver Jasmine Scofield passed by and asked if she could put his picture online.
"If anyone in the Silicon Valley could help him out, that would be incredible", Jasmine Scofield wrote. Her post went viral, with more than 216,000 likes and 134,000 retweets. Apparently, the homeless web developer got his Bachelor of Business Administration degree in Management Informations Systems from Texas A&M University.
But he ran out of money and became homeless after moving to Silicon Valley to pursue his dream of his own tech start-up.
"I'd been living in my vehicle for more than a year", he said of his 2015 Ford Transit Connect utility van.
But, it now looks like David won't be giving up on his dream any time soon. "Google reached out to me", he told the publication.
"He's sleeping in parks and still trying to get freelance work, interviews and applications in", she wrote, explaining that he has a computer and brings it to Starbucks and other places with free Wi-Fi to search for jobs and work on remote projects.
"I wanted to be in the Bay Area with all of the other tech companies". He added, "I was thinking you know, like this was like my last stop".
"I knew it would be posted on social media, I didn't know it would blow up like this", said Casarez to KNTV. "Pandora. A bunch of startups", he said, speaking by phone at a Starbucks near where he'd first gone begging - literally - for work. "I had an interview with Apple in January, but the job was filled internally".
Casarez did not indicate what he plans to do with all of the offers, but said he'll be back sleeping on his bench tonight.
Casarez had saved up some money, and planned to live off of his van to save money on rent. "I wasnt expecting that kind of response", Casarez told the Post.
