    Very good overview of the Norwegian job marketThis book introduced me to the cultural differences and the job market ecosystem in Norway. Putting an emphasis on how are things done specifically in Norway and also providing tips that are good for any job hunt. I was also introduced to some ideas and conventions that I’ve never heard about before, so the book was definitely helpful.
