What are some of the roadblocks you face searching for jobs here in Norway? How different (or similar) is it to job searching in another country?
I lived in the UK for 2 yrs, from 2009 - 2011, and I find it intriguing that I got several interviews and 2 job offers within a month of starting the job hunting process. And I was in London, where the population (& resulting competition) is at least 3x that of the largest cities in Norway. I had no such luck in Norway.
The major difference I could personally identify is that I wasn't met with as much suspicion as I often am in Norway. Then again I have a very English sounding name. I don't know if people with names like Mohammed Saqid or Gokul Ramarasandaran are just as lucky.
I would be most appreciative if the community could share its thoughts.
