If you already posted your video as private or set the video setting to “only me” you can convert your video to public. To change this setting, bring up the video on your phone and tap the three dots on the right hand side of your video. A toolbar will populate on the bottom of the screen, click on privacy settings. Next change “who can watch this video” from “only me” to “everyone.” Your video is now visible to recruiters.

I want to create a TikTok resume, but I am not sure what is needed?
Check out www.tiktokresumes.com homepage and see our tips on do’s and don’ts as well as example video resumes. We are encouraging users to showcase their elevator pitch as well as use our green screen filters to visually show their work experience. For example, are you an architect? Create a video showing your design process and end product. Are you a project manager, show us your organization skills and gantt charts! This is your opportunity to showcase what your paper resume cannot highlight.

Will TikTok be adding more companies and job openings?
This is a pilot program. For this round, the companies listed on the www.tiktokresumes.com, including their respective job openings they chose to feature, are set.

If I upload a TikTok resume, does that mean I have officially applied to a job?
Each company has their own hiring process. Some companies will reach out to you to for an interview while others will ask you to formally apply through their applicant tracking system. If a company is interested, they will email you with the next steps for their specific company.

This is my first time using or creating on TikTok, will that effect my ability to get noticed?
Not at all, because you are uploading your resume towards companies you are interested in, companies will receive your TikTok resume outside of the app. As a result, you won’t be impacted if your video isn’t on the “For you page” or top on the hashtag. Companies have also been advised to not take views or likes into consideration.

At TikTok we like you to bring true, authentic self to the platform, no specific phones or fancy cameras are needed to create content. The app is accessible from mobile and desktop.
