How Employees are Leveraging TikTok for Careers

Navigating the job market over the past year and a half has been a tricky territory for employees around the globe. Progression may have been halted, career pathways hindered and positions lost. Many people had more time on their hands which opened up ample opportunity to learn, develop and progress towards something new.

These changes opened up a community of career advice content through TikTok. The platform saw increased popularity as a result of the pandemic as a whole but there was also a huge demand for more niche, business and career content.
