TikTok has considered testing a channel specifically for career recruitment. Although the app is known for Gen-Z and Millennials showing off their dance moves and creative sides, the app is considering using it for resumes.  

The app already allows users to take advantage of their #CareerTok and #JobLife hashtags that authorize users to explore career related content. Twitter users seem to be excited about the new feature. Some are already receiving interviews because of the resume feature.  

 As reported by Forbes, TikTok is excited to be able to use their platform to allow job seekers to recruit in a creative way.  

“We’re humbled to be able to partner with some of the world’s most admired and emerging brands as we pilot a new way for job seekers to showcase their experiences and skillsets in creative and authentic ways,” Tiktok’s global head of marketing Nick Tran said.  

According to Forbes, TikTok will be teaming up with select companies like ChipotleTargetWWEAlo YogaShopifyContra, and  Movers+Shakers to offer entry-level positions to job seekers.
