From 1991 until 2000, Bischoff worked at Germany's largest trade union, IG Metall, on gender equality issues. In that capacity, she represented IG Metall in the relevant working groups of the European Trade Union Confederation (ETUC).

From 2000 to 2005, Bischoff worked as an advisor on social affairs at the Permanent Representation of Germany to the EU in Brussels before moving to the Federal Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs (BMAS) in Berlin as special advisor from 2006 to 2008.

From 2008 Bischoff worked for the German Trade Union Confederation (DGB) in Berlin, where she led the trade union's work on European policies.
