A resume hack on TikTok is sparking controversy — here's why

A career advisor’s resume hack has sparked a TikTok debate as to whether it’s ethical. Jonathan Javier, the CEO of consulting firm Wonsulting, suggests searching the position the candidate is interested in on LinkedIn. The candidate should then select the first few people who show up in the results and look at their “About” and “Experience” sections.

The candidate should filter out keywords to add to their resume before finding a recruiter on LinkedIn with those same keywords. Javier’s TikTok has since gone viral, but it also led to questions of whether his advice was appropriate
