TikTok is much more than a social media platform for one to show off their killer dance moves or creatively edited videos. There are several different kinds of content on TikTok and there are even those who offer career advices too!
Recently, as reported by Axios, TikTok is testing out a tool to help people find jobs and companies, recruiters and brands to search for suitable candidates. In addition to that, several big brands were invited to participate their test to help provide valuable improvement points and data.
According to the statement, the recruitment tool will not be integrated into the TikTok app itself, but a separate web page accessible via the app. Companies will be posting the job vacancies on this website, and most of them will be entry-level positions.
Since this is TikTok, one can upload their resume video to their profile, rather than a boring old written resume.
As TikTok is gradually expanding their service to recruitment, some might wonder whether this will replace LinkedIn.
From the description provided, the recruitment tool sounds like an upgraded version of LinkedIn. In addition to that, TikTok appeals to the younger users by offering a direct connection through the platform that they are familiar and comfortable with.
Moreover, it is reported that TikTok is turning into an active space for career-related guidance and advice and the brand aligns with broader usage trends.
