Big Sean & The Detroit Pistons Utilize 'TikTok Resumes' To Find Their Next Intern

Could you be the next intern for Big Sean and The Detroit Pistons?

According to All Hip-Hop, the NBA team will become the first professional sports team to utilize the “TikTok Resumes” pilot program.

Detroit native Big Sean will assist the Pistons in scouting the team’s new apprentice. The intern will be hired to support both the rapper and his hometown team’s marketing department.

Big Sean shared his thoughts about the ideal candidate in a TikTok video.

“I’m looking for a Creative Innovation intern to work with me and the Detroit Pistons because you know we got the #1 draft pick,” said Big Sean. “I’m looking for someone that’s passionate, someone that’s about that basketball culture, somebody who knows music and lifestyle marketing.”

The social media platform launched “TikTok Resumes” this month with the goal of presenting new ways for talented job seekers to find career paths through employers that include Chipotle, Target, WWE, and of course, the Pistons.

“‘TikTok Resumes’ is officially open and accepting TikTok video resumes,” said Global Head of Marketing at TikTok, Nick Tran. “We’re humbled to be able to partner with some of the world’s most admired and emerging brands as we pilot a new way for job seekers to showcase their experiences and skillsets in creative and authentic ways. #CareerTok is already a thriving subculture on the platform and we can’t wait to see how the community embraces TikTok Resumes and helps to reimagine recruiting and job discovery.”

Currently, Big Sean serves as the Creative Director of Innovation for the Detroit Pistons.

In his position, the Grammy-nominated rapper curates music for in-game entertainment that includes halftime performances and deejay playlists. He also collaborates with the Pistons’ design team to create custom merchandise line extensions.
