It is important to have realistic expectations and understand the importance of thorough preparation at an early stage to increase your chances.
Most employers place a lot of importance on Norwegian language skills to get both part-time and full-time positions. In some areas e.g. the hotel, restaurant and the petroleum sectors, English is often accepted as the working language.
We recommend you to sign up for a Norwegian language course to increase your job possibilities!
Voluntary work is also a useful way to get to learn the language and build your network.
