Life in Norway Show Episode 77: Isabelle Loh talks about her relocation from Singapore to Norway, and the challenges of finding work in the Norwegian capital.

Singapore and Oslo.
Singapore and Oslo.

Today I’m joined by Isabelle Loh, originally from Singapore and having relocated to Oslo with her Norwegian partner, she shared her frustrations about finding a job on LinkedIn, and drew a big response.

We talk about life in Oslo, how she’s gone about the job search and how that has changed over time, and some advice for fellow job-seekers. She includes advice on structuring your CV, and the importance of networking.
