An Insider’s Perspective on How You Can Get a Job at TikTok

TikTok is one of the biggest social networking platform of the year and a big part of the reason why that is the case has to do with the fact that it has managed to become popular with the younger users, an audience that might not have been all that interested in other options that had slowly started to become somewhat mainstream in the market all in all.

TikTok has managed to attain this level of success in spite of the fact that it is still pretty new in the industry at the end of the day, and this success means that quite a few people would be lining up to work at this new tech trailblazer that has so much potential and could even change the way we utilize social media in the first place.

With the tech company being owned by Chinese firm ByteDance jobs have been hard to come by, but with TikTok now aggressively expanding into American territory by opening offices all across the country, including huge metropolises such as New York or Los Angeles, people are going to be eager to get in on the action. However, if you were thinking of getting a job in this manner you might not realize just how difficult it has the potential to be if you are not extremely careful.

Luckily for you, an insider has come in with some useful insights that you can implement while you are applying for any kind of job at the company. This insider is none other than Kate Barney who is heading HR for the American division of TikTok so you can rest assured that her information is going to be legitimate in pretty much every single way, shape or form.

Suffice it to say that the current global pandemic that we are going through has impacted hiring in a really great way because of the fact that people are working from home, but one thing that you need to understand is that TikTok has a list of values that it looks for in its employees that it refers to as ByteStyle.

The interview will also be quite different because of the fact that the company conducts group interviews in order to see how you as well as other prospective applicants would play with others. Your interview will also be conducted over Zoom for obvious reasons so you should try to keep this in mind as it will have an impact on how you can approach any specific problem that ends up coming your way as it will change how you respond to certain questions and how you would go about preparing for said interview.
"Candidates who are really trying to push themselves to learn new things would be a better culture fit than someone who comes across as very arrogant or with a large ego.", explained Barney in an interview to BusinessInsider.
