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.
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 Salary.com, 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, Salary.com (US only), Zillow (US only), CareerOneStop (US only), Data.uk.gov (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

Check out the screenshots here to see how the app works, and download today to get started finding your next job.

Exclusively for Nokia Lumia

The app also allows you to create and submit resumes as well.
Only available in North America for now, but I’d imagine this would come in very useful worldwide. Right over at the Windows Phone Store.
