Employer Branding

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

I lead our college marketing efforts from our college ambassadors to campus events and partnerships. Just like other departments, I have the honor of collaborating with many teams across TikTok. I work with teams across the company to host events, run in-app campaigns, to promote through social media, and more. Teamwork makes the dream work!

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

My first role was in Business Development, where I helped media publishers get ramped up and familiar with TikTok. Since then I've been able to support our rebranding efforts, build processes to improve communication between our global teams and launch features used by millions of users.
