Remove the Guesswork and Tailor Your Resume with Purpose

A Smarter Way to Compare & Analyze Your Resume

When updating and optimizing your resume, it’s best to have some clear direction so that you aren’t working blind.

To run a successful job search, you can’t use the same resume over and over for every job you apply to. Positions are different, they contain different requirements and nuances that ultimately matter to the employer. 

Your resume should be customized for the specific job you’re applying to.

Our Resume Job Description Match is designed to help facilitate the process of tailoring a resume to a specific job. It compares your skills, experiences, and overall language to the content from the job description to uncover patterns, insights that can add clarity to your process.

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.
