Gmail bulk forwarding: Why is this not an option and what are our hacks?

I have a new job. Before I got a company email address, I was using my personal Gmail account to manage work related issues. I had a filter and thus, label set up to catch these emails in my personal account. I now have a work email account, powered by Gmail. I have a filter forwarding system on my personal account to catch new work related matters, but I want all of my OLD work emails from my personal account transferred as well.
There is no bulk forwarding mechanism from Google. I have also specifically downloaded a trial of Outlook so that I can use it to facilitate email for both personal and business acount so at least I can just grab and dump one folder into another. Unfortunately, I cannot get Outlook to recognize my work email account.
Lastly, I tried Got Your Back
. I could not get this to work.
Please give me your hacks to make this happen.
Note: I DO NOT want to go through my personal account and forward each old message one by one.
