– Hi, guys, today it's all about how to get work as a foreign student in Oslo, Norway And Victor, from Spain, will be our expert

He knows everything! Victor – is it possible to get a job as a foreign student in Norway? – Yes, it is possible I'm working in a car workshop – and – yes, it's possible to have work in Norway, even though you don't speak Norwegian The first thing is; when you arrive here, you appear as a newcomer for new companies So, the first thing I did, was to get a Norwegian number phone If you put your

for example, in my case, a Spanish number, it's obvious that you are not here for so much time – Very good advice, actually Didn't they ask you about the language? – Yes, they did ask me, but in a car workshop it's not so relevant to speak Norwegian

And, everybody here in Norway speaks English It's very easy for me to communicate with my teammates and my colleagues in the university So,there is no problem if you don't speak Norwegian – But do you speak ANY Norwegian? – "Jeg snakker litt norsk" (I speak a bit Norwegian) – Perfect

Perfect – This is very important; because if you're a European, you can work as much as you want, but if you're not European, you have a limit of 20 hours per week – You work with something that is related to your studies What do you study? – I'm studying electrical engineering And when I applied for a job, I didn't want the most common jobs in Norway for foreigners

– Which are? – For example, waiter It's well-paid job for non-Norwegian people But I wanted a related job for my career, so I started apply ing for relevant works

You have to apply for job positions even before coming here Getting a job is like two months, three months and even then, you have to wait an extra month to get paid So, it's important that you start as early as possible to get a job – That's interesting But where do you find these jobs? Because a lot of people ask that – Okay, I found it at Finnno

I think it's the best place in in the website You can find housing, you can find jobs, you can find almost everything there – So do research, online! And finnno, that's the place for you Do you have English pages there? – No, but I use Google translator

– OK – And that work? – Yeah – That way you can end up everywhere – Is it a walk in the park? – Well, it's not a walk in the park Obviously, it's hard applying for jobs I applied for many hours for many positions

So, if you want to get a job here, you obviously have to be very prepared – What is the best thing that you will say about working as a student in Norway? – OK … Timeout – Victor has prepared everything up front as an obedient student – As you can speak English; It's very easy for you to make friends You can make friends at university You can make friends at work – Aren't we supposed to be introverted? The Norwegians don’t speak to strangers? – No, because I am also a bit introverted

So, it's – Oh! You fit in! Victor is introverted You fit in

Do you think, eh Do you think you have to be introverted to get a job in Norway? – Maybe a bit I don't know, but

Yes – So you don't dance flamenco on your car shop? – Only in private – No flamenco!? – Are you dancing flamenco, Mads? – Yeah A cucaracha (singing – but interrupted) – OK, guys, that was all for today For next video – see you
