In the article, “TikTok Résumés?” (UpFront) I learned that people use the platform TikTok as a way to find jobs. For example, Makena Yee turned to TikTok and made a 60-second video that had up nearly 200,000 views and received more than 15 job leads. She’s not the only one to try this. College students and recent graduates are turning to TikTok to network and find jobs. And dozens of companies including Chipotle, Target, and Shopify have started hiring via the app.

Would you make a TikTok resume?

I think what is happening is that since this app has a lot of recognization and is viral at the moment it has the attention of everyone. Even including business owners. It’s not a bad idea if you are getting something out of it, especially a job!

Dear Jannette
I find your discussion post “Finding a job by tik tok” very interesting. Mainly because I think it’s really cool to see how much power and influence Tik Tok has to the point where it can even help find employment. Not to mention how easy it is to gain exposure via Tik Tok. 
One sentence that stood out to me is when you said “I think what is happening is that since this app has a lot of recognition and is viral at the moment it has the attention of everyone.” I totally agree with that statement!
Thank you for writing, I look forward to seeing what you write next because of your interesting take on things. Not to mention how well you explain things!

Dear Jannette

I really like your post about people finding ways to make money on an entertaining app.
I think TikTok is going to be as big as youtube and people will find more ways to make money on it like what YouTubers do on youtube. For example, people can pay TikTok influencers to do advertisements on TikTok or they can sell their product via live streaming on it.

Nowadays things develop so fast that it always has surprises for people. I wonder what will the world be like in 5 to 10 years.

Thank you for your amazing article!

Dear Janette,

I think this post is really interesting as it applies to our generation. It shows that as technology advances, the world changes to support that technology. Companies are changing to hire those who put their resume on tiktok. “And dozens of companies including Chipotle, Target, and Shopify have started hiring via the app.” I find it really cool that billion dollar companies are using the app for possible qualified employees. I’ve observed some of these tiktoks and I believe these innovative people are creating a new trend in jobsearching. This trend can positively impact how people find jobs as well as how they are hired. Companies can easily do outreach on platforms like tiktok. I encourage you to read this article about other innovative ways to conduct job searches.

Dear Jannette,

I am fascinated by your post ¨Finding a Job By TikTok¨, I think it’s interesting that people can gain fame or even jobs easily with 30-second videos. I do use TikTok myself and it shows a lot of creativity. I think this could be a gateway for others to be introduced to new things/opinions. There’s a lot of common interest the world shares, especially culturally it spreads more knowledge about how others live their everyday lives.

A sentence that stood out to me was when you mentioned the fact that people could easily become influencers, this would be an inspiration for children and even the same age followers. Another was when you stated the fact that most food businesses/celebrities promote their products.

Thanks for writing this article. I look forward to reading about your other opinions on today’s usage of the internet.

Dear Jannette:

I am stunned by your post, “Finding A Job By Tiktok”, for the reason that people are beginning to use social media apps to get jobs. I myself have seen people use tikok or social media as a source for jobs. I think that it is crazy how someone can make so much by uploading a 15-60 second video. Something else that I find weird is that the attention that their post gets them is incredible.

Something about your post that stood out to me is that they found a job in tiktok because we are beginning to enter an era where we don’t need to wake up at 6 am in the morning in order to make money but only have to record little or long videos to make a crazy amount of cash.

I hope that you keep on posting about this because this is an interesting topic to talk about and I would like for you to continue sharing about this because I would be looking forward to learn more about the lives of those who make tik tok videos for a living.

But wait, this article might be about using TicTok to get a job where you need to get up early. Then what?
