Cover Letter Guidelines and Samples
Every cover letter should be carefully developed for the potential employer. Briefly introduce yourself and give the reasons for interest in the position and how you will fulfill the demands of the job. Avoid long and complicated sentences and do not exceed one page. Include how you learned of the job opportunity (Internet, newspaper or networking).
Résumé/CV Guidelines and Samples
Résumés/CVs (curriculum vitae) can be written in either Norwegian or English. Most Norwegians are comfortable communicating in English; however, knowledge of Norwegian is an asset. Information should be well organized and, in two to three pages, provide a clear picture of your education, career and personality.
