Hi and welcome to the Tallo Community!

We're super excited that you've joined us and happy to have you here. There's no doubt that you are going to help us make our community vibrant, helpful, and pretty much the most awesome place ever.

If you're here, it means you're already a member of Tallo - your platform to showcase your skills, find scholarships, and match up with opportunities. So, you might be wondering what the Tallo Community is all about.

What is the Tallo Community all about?

Over the years, Tallo has grown to support over 1.5 million incredible students and opportunity seekers who're looking to be discovered by colleges and companies across the country.

With our growth came opportunities to connect with users like you to learn how we could improve the Tallo experience. Out of all the feedback and we received over the years, one powerful recommendation continued to stand out.

Everyone needs help along their academic and career journey. No matter who they are or where they're from, a certain obstacle or challenge exists for which they don't know how to overcome.

"What career field should I go into?"

"Should I go to a 2-year or 4-year college?"

"Will changing my major hurt me?"

For every person on Tallo who is at a fork in the road and doesn't know which way to go, there's another person in the Tallo family who's already experienced it and knows how to help.

That's why we created the Tallo Community. It's your place to connect with other Tallo members and ask burning questions about school, careers, and everything in between. It's also where you can share your experiences, guide other members, and cheer them on along the way.

The Tallo Community is a virtual platform where Tallo users come together to help others follow their dreams and achieve their education and career goals. It's that simple.

And the Tallo Community doesn't work without you. We're looking forward to you jumping in.
