Nokia JobLens wants to put you to work

Nokia is looking to help you find a new job with its JobLens augmented reality app.

Currently in beta, the Nokia JobLens was first demoed in February 2013 at Mobile World Congress, but we caught up with the app at the London launch of the Nokia Lumia 925.

The app gathers information about jobs and then will show you jobs available in your local area. You can view them on a conventional Here map, or using the live view like Nokia City Lens, or widely available apps such as Layar.

Of course it isn't just jobs. You can log into the app and add some of your own details, meaning you'll be able to filter those results that are relevant to you.

We didn't get the chance to see the full functionality of the app, but we spotted that Facebook and LinkedIn login is suggested, as well as various references to including your resume, or CV.

It's early days for the app, but it's nice to see Nokia focusing on something other than places to eat. Of course, it might be a waitressing job that you're after.

No word on when the app will be available, but we hope it will be coming to Windows Phone 8 Lumia devices soon.
