TikTok is still news. Yesterday we learned of its alliance with Movistar + to offer content on this platform, in addition to the ‘Shoutouts, a new method of monetization for creators’. Now comes TikTok Resumes, a new way to find work through the platform.
At the moment, the function is starting as a pilot program within the United States, but it is not ruled out that it will eventually reach more parts of the world. We are going to tell you how this program will work through which TikTok wants us to find work thanks to the app.

It will be enough to make a video in which we show our skills for the candidacy, either creatively or explaining our curriculum and work trajectory in our own way, a new way to find work through social networks and no traditional curriculum involved.
According to TikTok, this is a way to add value to the platform, creating an organic way to discover talented new candidates and career opportunities for them. It remains to be seen if it ends up reaching the rest of the countries, to become a real alternative to giants like LinkedIn or Infojobs.
