Applying for a job in Norway

In the job search process, you first have to perform self-assessment. Identify your goals, interests and values, as well as your skills and competencies. Practice on how to present yourself to a potential employer. Stay up-to-date with the job market throughout your studies. Job searching might take some time, so start the process as early as possible.
