You can now find your next job through Bumble
Since it launched in December 2014, Bumble has become the go-to dating app among people who aren’t into creeps.
And now, it’s branching out into networking and careers with Bumble Bizz.
Bumble Bizz launched yesterday in five countries including the US, Canada, the UK, France and Germany. You can find a future business partner, boss, employee, mentor — basically anyone in your professional career you’d ever wanna connect with — using the service.
There’s an official launch even coming later this month, where Priyanka Chopra, Kate Hudson, Karlie Kloss and others will talk about the one person they met who helped them get their big break career-wise.
“We’ve stayed focused on creating a community with a foundation built upon positivity, respect, confidence and encouraging women to make the first move,” Bumble founder Whitney Wolfe Herd said. “We now do this across all facets of their lives.”
Bumble also had a service for finding new besties called Bumble BFF.
Now for the deets: Bumble Bizz will use photos to ensure you’re not getting catfished with fake opportunities. Your profile will include a résumé, plus a skills section. You can also include examples of your work. Here are a few profile examples:
And since there’s a swiping element, Bumble Bizz will get rid of the thirst-trapping you’ll often see on LinkedIn. That’s right, Bumble Bizz isn’t going to let any randos with no experience in anything DM you to see if you want to “collaborate.”
Now get to swiping so you and your future business partner can start the next Fortune 500 company already!
