JobLens™: Nokia's Augmented Reality Job Search App
you in the market for a new job as an intern, part-time, temporary,
or full-time worker and are not quite sure how to go about finding out
where the kind of employment you are seeking is located? Wouldn't it
be nice if you could simply drive or walk around town and any place
that fit the bill would be highlighted for you automatically? Nokia
has a app for that, and it's called
JobLens™. Using what is termed "Augmented Reality," JobLens
assimilates a multitude of social networking services like LinkedIn,
Facebook, Twitter, Indeed, Here Maps, Windows Live, Salary.com, Zillow,
CareerOneStop, Data.uk.gov, Payscale, and other best-in-class content
partners along with other location-dependent resources to pinpoint targets
for investigation. It might be a little underpowered when looking for
an engineering type position, but for more common jobs it could prove
to be just the edge you need. I do not own the requisite Nokia smartphone
model to try out the JobLens app, but a fellow by the name of Philip B.
has provided an overview of
JobLens' functionality on a Nokia blog (also one by
Adam Fraser). In summary he says, "Open the app and you can swipe
between five main panes: Find a job, My network, Recommended, My saved
jobs and Resources. Move your phone around and you'll see jobs in different
directions, with the job title, company name and distance all showing
up. Click on a job and the app provides a lot more information, with
an overview of the vacancy showing up. If you think the job is for you,
click 'More' and you'll be taken to the job advert itself."
The JobLens app and the Internship Lens app are available for Nokia
Lumia 520, 620, 710, 720, 800, 820, 900, 920, 925 and 928 smartphones
in the UK, Canada and U.S. Price: Free. Here is Nokia's

RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling
2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas
and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer.
The Internet was still largely an unknown entity at the time and not much was available
in the form of WYSIWYG
