A recently laid off Arizona man handed out his resume in the triple-digit heat at a busy Phoenix intersection last week, generating multiple job offers.

Patrick Hoagland had recently been laid off from his old job at a metal recycling company, and had no luck when completing online applications and submitting his resume to local businesses, CNN reports. (RELATED: Arizona Border Mayor Speaks Out About The Migrant Crisis)

A driver noticed Hoagland and expressed her thoughts on Twitter, saying, “I was driving down Camelback Rd in Phx near my office and saw this guy on the side of the road with a smile in 110-degree heat, with a sign asking people to take his resume. I love that he was not asking for a handout, just for people to consider him for a job. #pleaseshare #job”
