Finnish maker Nokia wants to make job hunting easier in nearby user locations with a new Windows Phone 8 app, called JobLens, which leverages augmented reality to display available openings in surrounding areas.
The app, which arrived yesterday in Nokia’s exclusive collection, takes advantage of a number of services, like CareerOneStop, Data.uk.gov, Facebook, HERE Maps, Indeed, LinkedIn, Payscale, Salary.com and Twitter, to provide UK and US residents with nearby job listings.
JobLens also allows folks to create and store resumes, connect with hiring managers via social networks, apply for a position, receive directions to interview location, save available jobs and track progress, among other features.
According to Nokia, to achieve the best results, users have to connect with Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter and Windows Live accounts.
JobLens is available to download from Windows Phone Store.
