How to Get A Job in Norway

Just like any other country, you’d look at job websites, international or national companies with job postings in Norway, search the national job centre database, go to recruitment fairs, look in the newspaper, and listen out for ‘word-of-mouth’ opportunities.

How to Get A Job in NorwayThe easiest way to get a job in Norway is to be ‘poached’.  Norwegian companies (even government run) have a habit of approaching people privately and asking them to apply for open positions.  This, of course, requires you to be known, and, of course, this requires you to already be either working in Norway or being associated with a Norwegian.  However, to be ‘poached’ you need to be one of the best in your field.

Being in a profession high in demand is always a benefit to obtaining work in Norway.  The health, oil (engineering), hospitality, education, business and information technology industries are always good employers of non-Norwegians.

Formal education is very important for work in Norway.  It is hard to get an average job without a Bachelor’s degree.  It is hard to get a good paying job without a Master’s degree.

The easiest way to look for a job in Norway is via the Norwegian Labour and Welfare Administration (NAV.no).  This is because every weekday they collect all the new job openings from newspapers, job-boards and websites from around the country and post them on their own job seeking database.  Looking through the NAV database will tell you a lot about the Norwegian job market.
