With Microsoft gearing up to open pop-up shops all over the US to help increase its footprint this holiday season, Nokia now appears to be doing the same. In a job posting obtained by WPcentral, Nokia is looking to hire college students this holiday season for a retail push of its products.
The idea is not new, in fact, Nokia has done it previously in other parts of the world but this time it is bringing the shops to the US to surely push the latest Windows Phone products the company will be releasing in the next few weeks.
