In 2004, 10MinuteResume began an affiliate partnership with Pongo Software, utilizing Pongo’s online ResumeBUILDER software. “We needed to find a way to bring people in the door, provide them with value, and stay current with technologies,” said Mike Sheehan, board member for Portable Resume Corporation, which founded 10MinuteResume.com in 2000. “Pongo allowed us to do that with its online tools, which offer sophisticated functions in an easy-to-use application.”
Capron added, “PRC and many of our revenue-sharing affiliates, found they could generate more income by allowing Pongo to handle the technology side of things. We’re excited about the new possibilities that are opening up as we launch additional capabilities for our subscribers.” Those added capabilities will include expanding Pongo’s suite of online career advancement tools “to help people create, store, and send professional resumes and letters, and manage their entire job search in one secure, online location,” he said.
