How to overcome the biggest problem of finding an overseas job?

Be There!

Even if there are several job opportunities that suit your profile, overseas employers or placement agencies will ignore your application because you are not physically available.

To them, your availability would mean two things: whether you are in the country to face a personal interview and whether if selected you would be eligible to work.

In normal circumstances, you are allowed to work in a country if you possess a Job offer and the employer sponsors you for a relevant visa to work. Norway has a solution for foreigners with adequate skills who wish to start their career and are looking for Jobs by offering a special category of residence permit called Norway Skilled Jobseeker Residence Permit.

The Permit allows foreigners to legally enter Norway with a clear intent of seeking employment.

You are allowed to stay for 6 months and look for a job; upon expiry you will need to depart from the country. You can make multiple trips to Norway during this period.

With this Skilled Jobseeker Residence permit you are not allowed to work, but only hunt for Jobs. However as soon as you have finished interviewing with an employer and if you are offered a job, you will easily get a Skilled worker Residence Permit that allows you to work and to bring your spouse and dependents to live with you in Norway. This skilled worker residence permit forms to Permanent Residency upon completion of your 3 years residence status in Norway.

Also, you are allowed to get a Skilled Jobseeker Residence permit renewed or reapply until you are away from the country for more than a year.

This Residence permit not only allows you to search for a job, it also provides you the exposure and experience of finding an overseas jobs.

If you have not travelled overseas earlier, it will allow you to see the richest, the most developed economy and also build your travel history.
