Moving to Bergen, get a work visa as a job seeker and finding a job.

I've been reading a lot, like a lot lot about all the process in order to move to Bergen, I have a Bachelor degree in Industrial Engineering and 2 years of experience  in quality control and process improvement among other things, I'm scared of moving to Norway without having a job offer first because the longest I can stay as a tourist is no longer than 3 months and I would have to wait 6 months to enter again, if I move without having a job and start looking I don't how difficult would it be to find a job being there, I already have a place to stay which is good, all I need is to find a job and according to what I read in UDI's website the job have to be according to your background study, if I get a job as a secretary or working in a shop for example, I don't know if it will be enough to apply for the work visa, and I quote the UDI's requirement The job must normally be full-time. If you have been offered at least an 80 percent position, we will accept this.  The job you are offered must require qualifications as a skilled worker. You must have the qualifications that the job requires. The pay and working conditions must not be poorer than is normal in Norway.

I'm using more than 10 different sites (yep) to apply to jobs but no luck so far, I don't how much would change if I was actually in the country ,

I would appreciate any advice, thankss.

Hello, You probably going to need academical level language knowledge of Norwegian to work in your fields. There are special academical level language courses arranged by universities in Norway. Take one and while you are studying you also can take a look at the job market. Since you already have a little knowledge in Norska you can seek for those courses through university websites. All the best!
