Callison, 52, came to Sacramento two years prior from Washington wanting to be a cook for the Salvation Armed force. At the point when that didn’t work out, he was compelled to live on the streets. Yet, he never surrendered seek looking for a job.
Michael Marteen slowed down long enough to actually see Callison. “When I asked if I could see his resume, he hopped right up to hand one to me and then started telling me all about his experience as if it were an interview,” Marteen, 25, said. “I’ve been in situations where I had nothing and had to bust my butt to get work, and there he was doing that, so I have a lot of respect for him.”
Marteen had worked for a providing food organization years prior and suspected that he could pass Callison’s resume on to a few people that still work in the business. He purchased Callison a container of water and a few raviolis took a photo of his resume and posted it on Facebook. He hoped a job would come from his connections.
It worked! A person saw the post and presented Callison a job at a downtown restaurant called Pizza Rocks. “He was ecstatic about landing a job and very grateful for the opportunity,” Marteen said. “He was up the night before studying the menu for hours.”
