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.

Frequently Asked Questions

How is the resume score calculated?

The Resume Checker uses a scoring system that factors in a variety of data points from different types of resume information. Some of these include:

  • Resume Structure
  • Measurable Results
  • Keyword Usage
  • and more

Using this criteria, we grade your resume on a scale of 0-100%, according to best practices that have been proven to drive hiring decisions.

What is considered a good resume score?

A good resume score is 80% or higher.

This means that your current resume version aligns with most of the recommended best practices, and is not missing any vital information.

Which resume issues are most important to check?

While we recommend addressing all of the issues that are highlighted by in the resume analysis, they won’t always have equal importance.

The exact order of priority will depend on your particular situation and which position you're applying for, but we urge you to address the issues from the “Resume Structure” group first if present. These issues are related to missing sections, missing information, or information that lacks completeness.

You want to maximize every inch of your resume to make the greatest possible impact/impression, so we suggest first making sure that your resume has all of the information it needs. Once you’ve taken care of that, then move on to updating/optimizing the information in the best possible way.

Does the resume check factor in ATS?

The Resume Checker analyzes your resume on many of the same factors and criteria that the ATS looks for.
