How did you find out about
I decided to look online and found through a search.
How did Pongo specifically help you in your job search?
Pongo Resume helped me put together a very good-looking resume. It was an easy process that produced a very effective resume. Within 20 minutes of sending out resumes I had already received a response. I eventually received about a dozen inquiries and chose one to interview with. The company flew me out to their location to "wine and dine" me for a weekend. The interviewer told me that he receives probably 20 resumes a day and that they don't just fly every candidate out to interview. He said that he loved my resume, that it had caught his attention, and that's why I had been chosen for an interview.

Although the process was simple, you also need to take your time. Make up several drafts and rewrite or reword any part that you think can be improved. After a few attempts, you will have the perfect resume.
