Research shows that as much as 60 % of all available jobs are never advertised through the regular channels. This number may be a bit too high, but the fact remains that many vacancies are never published.
How do you find jobs that are not advertised? Be creative and use as many different channels as possible. Take direct contact with employers and send open applications or presentations of your qualifications. If you already have contacts in Norway, use them to get information about job seeking.
Often there will be many applicants for jobs that have been advertised.

Many vacancies are now only published via company web sites, and some companies will only accept applications submitted through their own electronic application system.
