TikTok is rethinking the traditional hiring process such that young candidates need no longer write CVs. Instead of pouring hours into crafting documents, a new jobs portal by the social network could have them submitting video résumés instead.
Sources told Axios that TikTok aspires to be a recruitment channel for brands and connect them with potential Gen Z employees. With this feature, users will be able to find job listings within the TikTok app, and when directed to the relevant webpage, they can attach a TikTok video résumé.
The popular video-sharing platform is currently testing the tool with a small group of companies, including “big brands” like certain sports leagues, Axios reported.
The hope is to make the job-hunting process more intuitive for Gen Z workers.
