TikTok's about much more than showing off killer dance moves or sharing cleverly edited videos. Some creators are offering career advice and, soon, you might be able to find a job through the platform.

The service is testing a recruitment tool, according to Axios, to help people find jobs and companies, recruiters and brands to unearth solid candidates. TikTok told Engadget it will have more to share in the coming days.

The feature reportedly won't be baked into the core TikTok app. It's said to be a webpage where job listings are posted, most of which will likely be entry-level positions. Since this is TikTok, you'll be able to post a video resume rather than a boring old written one, according to the report. You might be able to add your resume video to your profile as well.

Given how much time many young adults spend on TikTok, it could be a great way for brands to reach the people they're looking to hire. On the other hand, we could see more instances of people losing out on jobs over ill-advised posts if companies take a close look at their TikTok accounts. So, it's maybe worth setting up a secondary account for professional purposes, depending on what kind of job you're looking for.
