Getting a job is tough.

You're ready to stand out from the crowd with a TikTok resume that shows employers who you are and what you can do. 💪

But what should you include?

Reading your paper resume to the camera is not going to cut it.

Follow these steps to nail your TikTok resume and land a great job!

Make A List Of Your Key Skills

Check out some job descriptions for the roles you're interested in and make note of the most common words. You should reference these in your TikTok.

Think about what you have to offer, and what the hiring manager would want to see in the person they hire.

Okay, let's break that down.

Meet Angela
