Let's make some new connections together!
You might be curious about how a digital career fair works?
Imagine a regular career fair, with stands where you can go and speak to compnay representatives. It is just like that - but digitally!
All companies will be given a stand where they can introduce their company, add links to job openings and maybe even some promo videos about the companies.
Just like in real life - you can chat with the company representatives, or book individual meetings with each company (conducted through Zoom).
The more information you add to your profile when you register, the better! The companies can even search for your expertise and contact you - doesn't that sound great?
About Oslo and the Oslo region
Oslopolitans know how to live life. The Nordic capital is a place where you can realize your full career potential, pursue new passions and experience a work-life balance. A fast-growing startup scene, world-class cultural offerings, international cuisine, mountains, and coast are all at your doorstep. Within easy reach from the compact, green capital is over 65 cities and towns with universities and innovation hubs, specializing in advanced technologies and industries.
Oslo is a truly unique compact capital that's small enough to give people, companies, and ideas visibility, and resourceful enough to be a pioneering springboard for growth. The growing population of young, digitally savvy, and highly educated entrepreneurs have created a strong thirst for knowledge and innovation throughout the region.
You might talk to companies that are not geographically located in the city center, but it is easy to travel within the region and to showcase the best opportunities, we need to bring the entire region and all of their specialties!

The restaurants, bars and cafés Norwegian fashion insiders love
Areas such as Grünerløkka, St. Hanshaugen and Tøyen are still as trendy as ever, but the bright and shiny new places being developed right by the sea are particularly cool right now. Like a moth to the flame, restaurateurs and hip entrepreneurs have been flocking to open up places here. You'll find small art galleries such as Kösk showcasing modern art, the towering Munch Museum, Instagram-friendly spots to have a bite, and lots of places to hang out while gazing out at the fjord.
