Finding part-time work
Sammen Career & Counselling gives advice on how to find part-time work for international students.
Most employers in Norway require a good command of Norwegian, and are interested in hiring employees who have the potential to work long-term. However, it may be possible to find part-time, mostly unskilled jobs, where Norwegian language skills are not a prerequisite. You may wish to focus on the following types of opportunities:
Cafes/Bars/Restaurants, Hotels, Cleaning agencies
Paper route/Advertisement distribution
Souvenir shops, Tour Guide
International companies with English as working language
