Thank you all for the overwhelming amount of support you have given me! No amount of good deed on my part could ever repay that debt. I am responding to each and every one of you who have come across my inbox with a carefully crafted response. Thank you for the support!

On Saturday in twitter, his photo of him holding a placard and his resume was retweeted over 50,000 times and was liked over 70,000 times.
“I wasn’t expecting that kind of response,” he added.
Update: We’re putting him up in housing so he can focus on interviews, have a computer for him if needed, and he’ll be working with the @LambdaSchool careers team for interview practice if he doesn’t land a job quickly.
I’ll be shocked if he isn’t hired a month from now. https://t.co/RnAiNd3pfr

Emailed him. He’ll be taken care of one way or another, probably doesn’t even need us. Anyone else with this much gumption and hustle please send my way. https://t.co/RnAiNd3pfr
