Job mentor for immigrants and refugees

Are you an immigrant or refugee without a job offer in sight, who would like additional support to find your way into employment? Then you can get a job mentor! A job mentor is a person who is knowledgeable about the Norwegian labour market, is in active employment and who knows how the job search process works.

Would you like a job mentor – or would you like to become a job mentor? Contact us for more information!
