throng_newwant [1]Out of Silicon Valley, Sunil Mehta is re-branding Nimblecat [2] as Throng [3], which he calls an “always-on cloud-based mobile service that alerts job seekers to nearby jobs.”

It uses “semantic search [4]” rather than a keyword search. Job candidates describe the jobs they’re looking for, and Throng finds open positions near them.

It’s available on iPhones and Android phones, and is first tackling jobs in the western U.S.: California, Oregon, Washington, Nevada, Arizona, and Utah. Other states will be added next.

The launch is planned for February 12.
