Phong has been amazing so far!!! I graduated with my CS degree in the fall but have been having trouble getting interviews. The first thing Phong really helped me with was improving my resume. Then he gave me practical advice on how to setup a nice portfolio site quickly, and now we are working on a bigger project to help improve my porfolio. He has provided useful feedback at every step along the way, and is very responsive over chat when I have questions! Still job hunting after a few weeks (Feb 2023), but I actually got an interview this month, and just heard back from a second company about a potential interview. Pretty great results considering the current job market! Would definitley reccomend Phong 100%!!
