If you're not on TikTok, you're totally missing out. The platform offers every weird and wonderful thing you could ever want — including some of the best career content on the internet.

What industry do you want to learn about: Law? Tech? Business? Glass-blowing? There's something for everyone.

If you're a new grad just starting out, or one of the thousands of Americans considering a new career, TikTok is a great place to discover the latest tips for updating a resume, nailing a job interview, and searching the job market.

To help you out, we've rounded up five of our favorite CareerTok creators. We love them because:

1. @Corporatebaddie

Best Advice From @Greglangstaff

"If you want to know with absolute certainty if you are qualified for a job, there is one thing you need to do. If you don't do this one thing, you could be missing out on huge opportunities.

The thing? APPLY FOR THE JOB."

4. @ko.communication

Kristy Olinger is a corporate storyteller and communication consultant with over 20 years of experience. In her day job, Olinger teaches people how to communicate in ways that build relationships, expand influence, and make their jobs easier.

Great For:

@ko.communication Visibility is the most important factor influencing your career success. #corporatelife ♬ original sound - Kristy Olinger

Best Advice From @ko.communication

"If you're trying to confirm that your message was understood, don't ask, 'Does that make sense?' People are really unlikely to admit that they don't understand something — especially in a meeting. Instead, try saying, 'Am I making sense?'

"That makes it about your ability to communicate, not their ability to understand."

5. @Loewhaley

Laura Whaley is a 27-year-old IT consultant in Toronto and your self-appointed TikTok "work bestie." She makes goofy videos about the irony and aggravations of office life. If you want to bring a little levity to your day while still learning how to set respectful boundaries at work, check out her hilarious series, "How do you professionally say…?"

Best Advice From @Loewhaley

"In a world where you can be anything, be the person who ends meetings early."
