Looking for a job

There are many ways to find information about vacant jobs.
Newspapers and the Internet are good places to start.

Below are some tips on where to look for jobs. Not all jobs are advertised. Ask friends and acquaintances or get in touch with previous employers. Use your network! You can also contact employers you would like to work for. If you don't know the work place or the employer from before, you should prepare well for your first visit.

Yellow Pages in the online directory list various searchable businesses and trades, in English and Norwegian.

To find vacant jobs, you can also

  • use your employment agency
  • check newspaper adverts (Aftenposten has the most)
  • read Lysingsbladet
  • check professional magazines
  • contact temporary employment agencies (see Yellow Pages)
  • use Tekst-TV on NRK and TV2
  • call telephone number 800 33 166 free of charge
  • look for ads in shop windows and on note boards

Several websites list vacancies on the job market:
