Short video sharing app TikTok has launched TikTok Resumes, a platform where you can seek a job using TikTok. The last time we checked, job seeking was done on LinkedIn for the most part. However, TikTok Resumes looks like a completely different approach towards job seeking.

While it is a pilot program, TikTok Resumes has some well-known names on the list when it comes to companies hiring on the platform. Some of the names include Chipotle, Target, WWE, Alo Yoga, Shopify, Contra, Movers+Shakers. You can share a TikTok resume, a short video telling why the employer should hire you, and get yourself a job! That is amazing for the people familiar with the platform.

TikTok Resumes And Everything About Them

Jumping into further details, the TikTok Resumes pilot program is available only in the U.S. for now. The website also says you have to apply before July 31. It is a simple website with the dos and don’ts of a TikTok Resume.

You can apply from entry-level jobs and all the way up to a director’s position. Click on the ‘jobs’ button on the top-right side and you’ll see all the available positions. You can also look for jobs in particular brands by clicking on the ‘brands’ tab.

You can check out the TikTok Resumes on the TikTok app using the #TickTockResumes or on the website. Under the pilot program, the platform is accepting resumes from July 7 to July 31 in the U.S.

TikTok believes there’s an opportunity to bring more value to people’s experience with TikTok by enhancing the utility of the platform as a channel for recruitment. Short, creative videos, combined with TikTok’s easy-to-use, built-in creation tools have organically created new ways to discover talented candidates and career opportunities.

We can say this is a refreshing new way for candidates to apply for jobs. While it is still limited to the U.S. for now, we can expect to see the program expand to other countries as well. For now, LinkedIn is the most likely app to face direct competition from TikTok in the professional social media sphere.
