Tristan: What’s going on, Living Corporate? It’s Tristan, and I want to thank you for tapping back in with me as I provide some tips and advice for professionals. Today, I want to talk about TikTok Resumes.
Soon there may be a new way to apply to jobs. Many of us have heard about video resumes, but TikTok has taken the concept one step further. From July 7th through the 31st, the company is running a short-term pilot program called TikTok Resumes. The move was inspired by content like #CareerTok that has organically popped up and aligns with TikTok’s goal of connecting with college students and younger users.
Users will have the opportunity to create up to a 3-min video resume to creatively and authentically showcase their skillsets and experience. They then post it to TikTok, with #TikTokResumes in their caption when publishing their video. From there, they can send that video directly to recruiters through the app.
More than 30 companies have signed up to accept resumes, including Chipotle, Target, Shopify, the NBA, WWE, and more! There are open positions such as social media manager, video producer, on-camera host, and even senior data engineers. You can check out the openings at www.tiktokresumes.com.
While this may be a temporary pilot, it’s clear that TikTok is rethinking how corporations can connect with professionals. So it may be time to polish up those video recording skills so you don’t get left behind!
