When we asked people about industries and career opportunities in Norway, they reponded...

"Finding a job in Norway can be difficult and competitive. Many roles are filled by skilled locals who have been living and working in Norway for a number of years. Unless you are a citizen, you need either a residence permit or a temporary work permit to take up a job in Norway. The Norwegian Directorate of Immigration (UDI) grants residence permits and work permits to applicants who have work permits from their employers and the Norwegian Labour and Welfare Administration (NAV). Even with a permit, it is still hard to find a job as the cost of living is high and competition for jobs is strong. Applying for jobs directly, networking, and attending recruitment events are all good ways to increase your chances of employment," commented one expat who made the move to Norway.
