Working abroad sounds like an adventure to many people. However, employment in Norway requires more than just the obvious Norwegian CV writing and translation. You will face issues that probably did not even cross your mind when you start planning to find Norwegian jobs.

Do not be wrong about the impact they can have on the result of your adventure! For example, you will experience the unusual immigration rules and practices, job application procedures, the selection trends and the management culture.

Norwegian Dress Code for Job Interviews

It is important to demonstrate at an interview good appearance as well as good manners.

Do your research. Find out what their employees wear and then dress as they are or nicer than that.

Norwegian business attire is somewhat casual by European standards.

Men should wear dark colored, conservative business suits to meetings. Whenever you are in doubt, the best policy is to call ahead and inquire about the dress requirements.

Women should wear well-tailored dresses or trouser suits / pants suits [especially for the first meeting]. Jewelry and accessories should be kept to a minimum and always be understated. Shoes should be highly polished.

Caps, bandannas, athletic shoes, sweats, unkempt clothes, jeans, singlets, open shoes and thongs are never acceptable. If the wind was blowing, comb your hair before making first contact at the reception. Do not carry a water bottle or coffee mug. Carry only a slim folder holding your job application documents and CVs. Do not chew anything.
