TikTok just launched a new feature to aid job applications. TikTok started out as being the most used network for sharing entertaining short videos, but it has exploded to become a new medium for getting ideas through.
Despite the short format, TikTok users discovered a creative way to begin bullet points more attractive. The network would now start fully embracing that use case in order to help users and prospective employers find each other with a new TikTok Resumes platform that feels almost like LinkedIn and Tinder further smashed right into one.
TikTok Launched a New Feature to Aid Job Applications
Although whimsical videos would further comprise the majority of the network’s library, TikTok has used all sorts of “serious” video content. They range from commentary on sociopolitical events to information material presented in a more digestible and entertaining format. TikTok now happens to be challenging the creativity of people hunting for jobs to squeeze as much as they can concerning their professional qualifications just to get the attention of the lead hunters.
TikTok Resumes places a social spin on the job application process, to partner with a few companies and organizations searching for entry-level applicants. The video idea of a resume looks simpler but placing it in a memorable presentation with constrained time limits requires a lot more than just one simple video application. Perhaps it is very fortunate that TikTok would be expanding right into the video limit of three minutes.
TikTok Resumes is both available right in the app with the #TikTok Resumes tag as well as a dedicated website for the program. This seems like a time-limited event, however, open only for the US and from July 7 through July 31 only.
TikTok Shoutout Feature
This network happens to be testing out a “Shoutout” Feature in Dubai and Turkey. The way it works is that users get to pay creators to create and broadcast a custom video. This now looks like it would be the company’s latest attempt at monetizing the network and helping its users make a profit from their videos. It is not yet clear, however, when this feature further expands to other markets, Presuming TikTok does not take it out before it occurs.
