TikTok takes inspiration from LinkedIn - launches a new feature called “TikTok resumes"

You may be familiar with LinkedIn, Fiver, and Upwork when it comes to looking for freelance job opportunities. Well, be ready to add another name to the list - TikTok.

TikTok has launched a new feature called TikTok Resumes which does have the same incentive as all job-seeking platforms but with a slight twist. You can now make your resume in the form of a video. The idea calls for a lot of creativity and enthusiasm, much more interesting and captivating than boring old CVs.

Since TikTok is already affiliated with a lot of brands, being one of the largest subtle advertisement grounds, it won't be a problem acquiring potential customers. Names like Chipotle, Target, and Contra are some of the big fishes you might catch if you set your rod just right. Simply send in a video explaining why you're the perfect pick for the job and viola! The job might be yours. However, do not forget you will have just 10 seconds to do so.

TikTok Resumes has launched a pilot program for now which is only available in the US at the moment. The pilot has all the dos and don'ts of the site, explaining how the process works. The platform allows users to apply for all kinds of jobs from an intern to a director - but only if they have the potential. The jobs button is placed on the right side where you can look for jobs while the feature also consists of an area where you can search for specific brands if there's any you want to particularly try out for.

Since the clock is ticking, you better hurry. TikTok claims the position to be open only for a particular period, from July 7th to July 31st. To search up the feature, simply look for #TikTokResumes or log onto the site.

TikTok believes it was due time that such an incentive was launched. Since the platform is the most authentic source of organic and original content with creativity screaming through, it is indeed the best place to recruit bold and fresh minds.

Since the test is only limited to a particular region, the US, for now, other places won’t be facing much competition. However, we can assure you that once the feature thrives, all the major job-seeking platforms will be in for a fight. LinkedIn is speculated to be the most affected by the new launch.

It is essential to keep in mind that the videos being made are only 10 seconds long. We are not sure if the new 3-minute videos would apply to the resumes, but for now, we can only be sure of what is given. This seems like the only obstacle where creators will have to rummage through all their resources to come up with the best possible resume in a video format consisting of content only 10 seconds long. While on actual resumes, it does give you a bit more space right? However, we do feel that TikTok resumes are going to be a hot feature since you can express emotions in your resume calling for the chance of getting a job without any interviews.

We look forward to TikTok rolling out the feature all around the globe soon. To stay updated, say connected.
