Bumble Bizz is an extension of the Bumble App. To get access to this app, you just need to download the app on your iOS or Android device and select the ‘Bizz’ mode. You can tell this app’s good for sure when Kris Jenner uses this app to find an assistant for herself.
This app is different from any networking app because it allows men and women to create profiles based on their resumes and skills. Bumble Bizz allows users to make a move and network with someone based purely on their corporate success.
Bumble stated that this extension of the ‘Bizz’ was nothing like a recruiter platform. This app enables users to network and connects, not recruit individuals. But this app also comes with a great catch – women can filter out men and only network with fellow women. Though this may outrage some people claiming to be sexist and partial towards women – it doesn’t matter.
The reason behind this app’s feature of enabling mentoring and networking within especially women is to eradicate the under-represented female working population. The women-only filter was created only to help women communicate freely among themselves, which is something they may not be able to do on a daily basis at work.
This app greatly encourages women to network, and also includes men if the women-only filter isn’t applied, providing a great platform for working individuals that are seeking professional connections out there. While this app has been compared to LinkedIn various times, the founder of the app clearly states that recruitment is not an option on this platform. This means that recruiters can check out candidate’s profiles, but the app does not encourage recruiters to reach out and hire these women (and some men).
Bumble Bizz has clearly spoken about condemning misusing this app to recruit only women. This is because the founder and the establishment believe that discriminating on the basis of religion, caste, color, gender, or any criteria is not acceptable.
This app seems like a great step towards women’s empowerment and visibility of working women. While the only downfall to this app is that men are a greatly under-represented group on this app, it makes them feel left out and they may miss out on some great networking if they get overwhelmed by the ratio of men vs. women.
