Augmented Vacancies is the first online job site incorporating a unique mobile application using Augmented Reality (AR) and GPS allowing you to see job vacancies while you are out and about. We believe our platform provides a great new way for our users to discover potential job opportunities which they may not otherwise find.
We are very pleased to annouce that our mobile application is now available to be downloaded on both platforms: iOS and the Android. Since we are in Beta, we would love your feedbacks. If you are an employer and would like to pose any vacancies onto our system, please feel free to sign up and create the job adverts for FREE by clicking here .
*BETA means we are on a development stage where some part of our application will not perfom well and incomplete.
Augmented Vacancies aims at students and smartphone job seekers who are looking for jobs on the go. We completely understand how demotivated it can be when searching for jobs, especially after been turned down by potential employers about your job applications.
To create a job market, we have created a recruitment management platform for the employers to manage the applications they received. At the same time, this platform can reduce the recruitment process as it will allow you to view the candidates in real-time experience through their video CV.
As a requirement, users will need to create or upload at least a CV using desktop before they can apply for a job. However, we advise our users to create a selection of different CV's to different job categories for example one CV for a Sales Assistant's job, one CV for a Software Developer's job and another one for a Director's job.
After creating a selection of different CV's, users can then manage all their application process on their smartphones from creating a Video CV, select the relevant CV to the job they are applying, receiving alert for their job application, arrange interview dates and so on.

AV presents an amazing opportunity for mobile technology to close the generation gap between traditional recruitment process and the way in which young people want to engage with the commercial world today. AV allows the mobile device user to access real time opportunities on the move and bring to life an advertised job by presenting it to job seeker while in the immediate geographic vicinity of the opportunity itself.

..... The Augmented Vacancies project, developed by Sharon Oh, is an excellent example of the possibilities provided by Augmented Reality. Indeed, Augmented Vacancies has the potential to be commercialised as an extremely valuable and significant recruitment and job-finding application . The University of Bedfordshire is keen that Sharon develops the application and has been working with her on this aim since her graduation in 2013
