It’s June! Six months into a year that feels like it has seen brighter days. As always, the Tealium Recruiting team is moving forward - we’ve made several key hires with more on the way and making progress on various initiatives slated for 2020. Nevertheless, it has been impossible to ignore the collective fear and uncertainty we all face in the time of Covid-19.
One dispiriting side effect is feeling unable to help those affected by the economic impacts of this pandemic. As recruiters, we are uniquely positioned to hear first and secondhand from people who have lost their jobs, and as a result their sense of security. Our social media feeds are littered with companies making major workforce reductions. The fact is, the impacted professionals we have spoken with are only a drop in the bucket.
The US Jobs Report for April brought the news that we have lost 20.6 million jobs since mid-March (according to USA Today, 18 million of those jobs lost are expected to be temporary). That number is only expected to increase, with early Fed estimates showing potential losses of up to 47 million jobs over the course of the pandemic.
For those of you whose livelihoods may be reflected in the numbers above, all I can say is: you are in great company. Millions of talented and promising individuals have lost their jobs due to the economic downturn or shutdowns of Covid-19. I’m thrilled to share that some of those individuals will find a new home with Tealium. That said, we would love to do more. In this post:

Our recruiting team is composed of six passionate and seasoned professionals with more than 30 years of combined recruiting experience. We’d like to offer our resume editing/review services to those who have been laid off over the last several weeks due to Covid-19. We are all in this together.
What We Can Do to Help
We will not be able to write any resumes from scratch, or completely overhaul, but we can review experience for relevancy, provide tips on formatting, evaluate comprehension, etc. We will be using a lottery system to select resumes to review and so we may not get to every resume immediately, but we will certainly do our best!
If you have lost your role or expect to do so imminently, we invite you to send your resume to our dedicated email alias at firstname.lastname@example.org for review and feedback.
Resumes sent to this alias DO NOT take the place of an application and are not guaranteed any review for Tealium positions. The only appropriate portal to submit resumes for consideration is the Tealium careers page: https://tealium.com/careers/.
The Tealium Job Board
Additionally, some of our wonderful Tealium counterparts have created a job board for companies seeking individuals with Tealium skills. If you are at a company interested in posting to this forum, please go to the Tealium Job Board. We are happy to help connect Tealium users with positions that require a Tealium skillset.
Resume Tips from Our Experts
This resume guide is intended to help job seekers impacted by Covid-19 prepare and improve their chances of being selected for interviews. Our goal is to provide resume writing tips and tricks from our team’s combined 30+ years of experience in both in-house and agency recruiting environments. There’s no perfect resume, and we can’t guarantee these tips will get you selected. The more time and research invested into your resume and job search, the more likely it will yield the desired result. Now, let us help you show the world how great you are!
We recommend following one of the following three formats:
Which resume format should you choose? A great article that might help can be found here.
Regardless of resume format, we recommend following these basic resume writing tips:
Contact information should be legible and easy to find at the top of your resume.
Focus on accomplishments rather than responsibilities.
Research the job requirements and tailor your resume to each application.
Be as honest as possible when describing previous experience and as accurate as possible when listing employment dates.
Always spell check and review for proper grammar.
We recommend using present tense when referencing a current position and past tense for prior roles.
Resume length is always debatable, but we recommend being as concise as possible. General guidelines usually recommend 1 page or less for newer job seekers (Less than 3 years’ experience) and up to 2 pages for more experienced job seekers. Executives and high-ranking applicants may require longer resumes depending on position requirements.
Formatting should be consistent throughout the resume - font type, font size, margins, spacing, dates, etc.
Your resume is an opportunity to tell your story in a way that aligns with a job listing. Be creative, concise, and be yourself!

Tealium hosted 51 of San Diego's most ambitious coders over the past weekend for a friendly competition and some stellar networking! After sessions with some of our in-house technical experts, attendees were set free to plan, design, code and impress the judges with their presentations.
Our judges evaluated each team project on the following scoring criteria:
Creativity - Freshness of idea, Innovation
Depth of Platform Usage - 1 point for each Feature/Source
Collaboration of Team - Did the team work together well? Were they on the same page in regards to concept?
Presentation of Concept- Charisma, Clarity, Communication. Was there a "why" driving their idea?
Working Product- Did it function as planned? Could they demo a working product?
Project Cleanliness/Sophistication- How did the UI look? Was the project overly simple? Unclear? Bugs?
Here are the highlights of the solutions from the three teams who took home prizes.
1st Place: The Da Vinci Coders
The 1st place award was given to The Da Vinci Coders, whose mission statement was "transparency on visitor data collection". This team set out to use Tealium to give users access to non-technical, readable data about the information a company collects about the consumer. This tool featured an interactive modal with graphs and statistic generated from the data collected for the user and options to download the data, update consent preferences for specific data points, and delete their profile entirely. A secondary feature was a live data feed widget to display the updated data known about a user as they navigated and interacted with the website.
Unique Features: team spent time wireframing before build and leveraged Tealium Deployment (extensions), download option. The tool was implemented entirely through Tealium iQ, with no required changes to the source code of the website.
Tealium Components: Visitor Lookup API, DataAccess, Mock Data API
Congratulations to the first place winners!
2nd Place: MapVertize
The 2nd place award was given to team MapVertize, who created a way to visualize product/user density over time to help distribute resources to appropriate locations. This application displays a map with gradient based location indicators showing the volume of events received for any given timeframe for a specific location. The interface provides features for updating the location being viewed and the timeframe being evaluated, including a slider feature which allows users to watch the location indicators dynamically appear, grow and shrink through the passing of time.
Unique Features: geolocation and time data used
Tech Stack: React, Google Maps
Tealium Components: Mock Profile API
Congratulations to the 2nd place team!
3rd Place: The Average Joes
We awarded 3rd place to The Average Joes, who gave us a clear understanding of their teamwork and roles while creating usable data for customers. Their aim was to create data driven decisions by easily visualizing KPIs. The Average Joes application shows charts and graphs of data averages across a population for any attributes configured within AudienceStream and also allows you to compare the dataset averages directly to an individual with interface controls for filtering and sorting.
Unique Features: compares stats of an individual against the aggregate audience
Tech Stack: Plotly/D3, SVG, JS, GIT
Tealium Components: Mock Data API
We had a blast hosting and learning alongside the Game of Codes attendees and hope to see even more coders and designers come out for our next hackathon. Stay tuned for future events with the Tealium team!
Special thanks to product experts and all who volunteered to present, coach, and support at the Hackathon.
