The interview process in Norway

Select rough translation.

HOW TO PLAN FOR YOUR INTERVIEW WITH YOUR NORWEGIAN EMPLOYER

So you have set Norway as your work target, here are some of the questions you may get in the interviews. Many of the Norwegian employers are receiving a ton of emails and CVs with resumes attached mostly everyday. It will be wise to prepare for the types of questions you may get.

There are many questions a norwegian employer has no right to ask by law, such as:

What is your relationship status?

Are you planning to have children?

And other deep personal questions.

Even if you have the right to not answer such direct personal questions, it is not always so wise to confront the questions, but rather sincerely reply that you dont think it has anything to do with the work. Remember that interviews is a dance, if you step on your partners toes too often, the dance will be over pretty fast.
