Tiktok Now Allows Users To Submit Video Applications Through Its Resume Program
TikTok became more interesting because it launched a new program that allows its users to send video resumes to listed companies. Several companies have already been included in the program, including Target, Abercrombie and Fitch, Zenith, Fuse, Meredith, Shopify, NASCAR, Alo Yoga, Contra and WWE. More and more companies are expected to join as the program grows.
The program is available at tiktokresumes.com. Once on the site, applicants can find job postings from participating brands. When they click on the job link, they go to the job description and specification page.
Most of the job openings of participating companies consist of entry and mid-level openings. But there are also mid-level jobs as well as senior-level jobs like managers. Some jobs can be particularly demanding for TikTok skills, such as a video maker for a kitchen brand.
With this initiative, the company hopes to provide its users with the opportunity to contact brands for employment in a much more fun and exciting way. Already, the #careertok hashtag is a thriving subculture on the platform. TikTok users use the platform to chart career paths by sharing career tips as well as resume building tips.
“We can’t wait to see how the community embraces TikTok CVs and helps reinvent recruiting and job discovery.”
Nick Tran, Global Marketing Manager for TikTok
The initiative will accept applications for a limited period until July 31. TikTok sees this new program as an extension of its College Ambassador program, which recruits students to promote the social network.
While the program is currently only available to users in the United States, the company plans to expand it to other markets in the coming months.
