This week, TikTok launched its ‘TikTok Resumes’ pilot program, aiming to connect users with job vacancies at major corporations such as Shopify, Target, Chipotle, and Alo Yoga. Users in the United States can submit video résumés from now till July 31.
According to Insider, TikTok users have already been sharing career and interview tips on the social media platform, including résumé-building advice.
Now, job seekers can showcase themselves and their skillsets creatively on the app, by using the hashtag #TikTokResumes. They can browse job listings, view examples of A-star video resumes, and check out profiles of creators who offer career-related advice before submitting their own.
“We’re humbled to be able to partner with some of the world’s most admired and emerging brands as we pilot a new way for job seekers to showcase their experiences and skillsets in creative and authentic ways. #CareerTok is already a thriving subculture on the platform and we can’t wait to see how the community embraces TikTok Resumes and helps to reimagine recruiting and job discovery,” said Nick Tran, Global Head of Marketing at TikTok.
