Much to the distaste of Geriatric Millennials (please don’t hate us) and older, TikTok seems to be here to stay. The application originally soared in popularity with videos featuring viral dance routines, animals acting silly, and other (mostly) light-hearted shenanigans. But now TikTok has gained footing in other types of content, including the career space and job search.
In a previous post, we highlighted TikTok’s pilot program, TikTok Resumes. But in this post, we’re focusing on content creators aiming to help you secure your next position. The accounts we feature in this article provide solid, actionable advice you can apply to your job search.
Without further ado, here are the creators we recommend following if you are job searching:
Jenny’s videos feature actionable advice presented in an easily digestible way. She does a great job of speaking with job searchers and not at them. Her presentation is full of empathy, humor, and a deep understanding of what job searchers are experiencing during the process.
