Improving your career one TikTok at a time

by Oct 16, 2020

Since March we’ve all spent a lot more time at home, leading to lots of baking misadventures, skyrocketing screen time, and hours of online shopping. Since then, TikTok — one of the new kids on the block — captured our attention with its addictive dance, lipsync, and humorous content. I mean, who hasn’t accidentally spent a whole day in bed scrolling? Just me? Ok…

But TikTok isn’t just for millennials and Gen-Zs to mindlessly “renegade” to their heart’s content; it’s a thriving creative community that champions individuality and innovation. The platform is even known for popularising content that educates, organises movements, and inspires change!
