• Topic: Using TikToc to Recruit
o TikTok is one of the fastest growing social media platforms in the world. This has presented an exciting opportunity for employers as it has created an alternative channel beyond the “big four” (LinkedIn, Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook) to get in front of candidates in a unique way. However, many organizations have been hesitant to make use of this video-sharing app. In this session, I’ll share ways you can leverage TikTok to enhance your employer brand with your target talent demographics. I’ll show you the basics of how to use the platform so that you’re equipped with the knowledge you need to go back to your organization and start creating content to gain an advantage over your hiring competitors and attracting qualified talent.
