Nokia Launches JobLens App- Find Nearby Vacancies With Augmented Reality

Nokia’s been big on using Augmented Reality in their apps for practical purposes like LiveSight in HERE Maps, and today they’ve released Nokia JobLens for North America, meant to help job seekers. Nokia just released a new Windows Phone application that uses their LiveSight augmented reality technology to help you find the perfect job. Salary data, neighborhood info, contact relations and more are used to help in your job search.

The app is available for the US and Canada today, and uses the same LiveSight sight recognition technology in collaboration with LinkedIn, Indeed, Zillow and, all together to visualize where there are open positions around you.

JobLens(TM) helps you see jobs all around you through augmented reality, and land those jobs through some of the biggest, most respected brands in career services. Powered by Indeed, Linkedin, Here Maps, Twitter, Facebook, Windows Live, (US only), Zillow (US only), CareerOneStop (US only), (UK only), Payscale (UK only) and other best-in-class content partners, the app enables you to discover new job opportunities in both the physical world and through your social networks.

JobLens helps you every step of the way:

  • Find positions that are right for you
  •  Identify people in your social network who can connect you to the hiring manager
  • Create and store your resume/CV
  • -Apply to the job
  •  Get directions to the interview
  •  Get up-to-date news and information about employers you like
  •  Learn about job location demographics and employment trends in your field
  • Save jobs you like and track your progress

For the best and most personalized JobLens experience, log in with your Linkedin account credentials when prompted during first use. Enhance your experience by logging in with Facebook, Windows Live and Twitter credentials.

It leverages the handset’s built-in camera, as well as Nokia Maps, to serve up a number of job openings based on the user’s location. The augmented reality is similar to Nokia’s rather novel City Lens app, and should help out jobseekers patrolling their neighborhood with a pile of resumes.
