We’ve been in this business for awhile, so we’ve learned a thing or two about what students need. Sometimes there are simple things that can fly under the radar. As we’ve grown and evolved, so too have our app and digital platform. Each day, we are working to make the Tallo experience as useful as it can be.  

Here are just a few of the things that make Tallo...well, Tallo!

Geographic Preferences

It’s a big world out there. Perhaps you’re ready to jet off and start your own adventure somewhere new. Or maybe you want to stay close to home. Either way, you can set your geographic preferences so colleges and organizations know whether you’d be interested in packing your bags or staying put.   

Digital Badges

Let’s be real. Even if it’s just logging 5,000 steps on their Fitbit, everyone loves showing off their accomplishments! Showcase your unique credentials and qualifications with our digital badges. Achievement unlocked.

Profile Exporting

You’ve worked hard filling out your profile, so share it everywhere you can. However, it may not be the best idea to pull up Tallo on your phone when an interviewer asks for your resume. But you know what is a great idea? Export your profile into PDF format, print it out (or email it) and be prepared for those face-to-face situations!

Next Steps

The future can be uncertain, and that can make life’s big transitions a little nerve-wracking. That’s what our Next Step feature is all about. Whether you’re headed to a four-year college, two-year college, the military, or the workforce, selecting your next step icon will help schools, businesses, and organizations find you! And you can always change your mind later, so take a few deep breaths and relax.  

Videos

Resumes are important, but can a piece of paper really tell the whole story about YOU? We didn’t think so. Our video feature gives you the ability to truly stand out amongst the crowd. Can you dance? Sing? Play the guitar? Handle a miter saw like a pro? Flip that camera into landscape mode and start recording!

 

Something Extra for Your Extracurriculars

We know that putting yourself out there in front of colleges and employers can be awkward, confusing, or scary. Maybe you don’t know what to say or how to say it. Well, we hope Tallo’s making the whole process a little better.

We know there’s more to your story (and your Tallo profile) than just your GPA and standardized test scores. Just about anything that you do outside of the classroom can have a place in your profile. If you’re having a hard time figuring out what to write, we went ahead and made a little list for you.  

Any of them sound like you? Go ahead and paste them right into your profile. It’s cool with us. All you have to do is fill in the blanks and switch up the descriptions to match your unique experiences. Easy-peasy!

1. Trusted babysitter with (insert number) years of childcare experience

As a dependable and dedicated babysitter, I ensure that the young children in my care are kept safe and engaged. I am consistently recommended by my clients to other parents due to my trustworthiness and experience.

2. Volunteer with (insert local community or faith organization)

As a member of my organization’s marketing committee, I helped generate interest for our largest fundraising event of the year. By promoting the event with flyers, emails, and telephone calls, we set a new attendance record.

3. Member of (insert sports team)

As a three-year member of my school’s varsity basketball team, I have learned important skills such as teamwork, cooperation, and commitment. Over three years, I was never late to a single practice or game, and I was voted co-captain during my senior season.

4. Freelance lawn maintenance professional

I have spent the past two summers managing my own lawn care business by proactively advertising my services to members of the community. I worked hard to ensure that each customer was satisfied with the level of care I provided for their lawn, and have grown my client list extensively.  

5. Experienced (insert subject) tutor

As a tutor, I know that it takes compassion and patience to help others learn. I help students complete their homework and special assignment, and prepare for tests. My favorite part is when a student shows me that their grade has improved!
