I started my job search in the beginning of December 2023, and the discovery of Teal has been a game-changer. This invaluable tool has significantly enhanced my ability to stay focused, organized, and efficient throughout the process. I highly recommend using the extension, exploring additional services, and tapping into the incredible resources offered by Teal. A heartfelt thank you to Teal HQ for providing such a beneficial platform!

The extension has really made a difference in my job search! It is easy to add info from a number of job boards to my Teal account to track positions I’m interested in and effectively manage a lot more information on possible career tracks than I could do with a conventional job application tracker system. It is easy, effective, works with most major job boards applications (like Workday or LinkedIn) and in cases where it doesn’t play seamlessly it’s extremely efficient to copy and past info from the site. It’s a terrific little tool with a big impact.

I use this extension to quickly bookmark opportunities so I can do more research at a later time. It’s so much easier to use this extension than bookmarking the job post or sending myself an email. It certainly keeps me organized.

Teal is amazing and the Chrome extension is invaluable! Not only does Teal offer the ability to track job postings, take notes, rate the jobs, provide resume guidance, and track the whole application process .. for free .. the Chrome extension allows one to save the job with as little as two clicks. Even if the job board or site isn’t supported by the extension, it still provides the opportunity to easily copy/paste the information without having to navigate multiple tabs or windows. GOLD!

Teal is a great resource to organizing and managing my job search. For months I have been struggling to keep up with all the job postings, my progress, and contacts to network with. In a week, Teal has organized the entire process. Using the chrome extension is necessary for proper functionality because I simply add postings from LinkedIn or Indeed directly to my bookmarked list of jobs. 5 stars.

How to Use the Job Search Journal


Save Your Job to the Application Tracker

Once you have your job saved to your Application Tracker – open up the Job to see an overview of the Notes, Resumes, Contacts, Email Templates and Interview Check List for that job.


Navigate to the “Notes” Section of the Job

In the “Notes'' section, you’ll see the option to choose the dates for when the job was posted, when you saved it to your tracker, the date you applied, and when you want to follow up. You’ll want to reference the job description, your resume, and the Interview Check List to review any important to-do’s such as researching the company culture, follow up communication. 


Log Your Notes

After reviewing your to-do’s, you’ll want to log any important information to your “Notes” section on the right. You can log notes of relevant achievements to mention during the interview, questions you have about the company, topics to reference during the interview, and any important takeaways you want to keep track of.
