Joachim Lucas

Joachim has a Master Degree in Science in Management from Bordeaux Management School in France, and currently working as Market Advisor in French-Norwegian Chamber of Commerce. He believes that he has acquired a global mindset during his first long stay abroad in Indonesia, and that he has improved it through many different experiences in Europe and Asia. Joachim has immersed himself in the Norwegian culture and lifestyle, and he is now doing his best to make French SMEs benefit from his experience, so that they can easily overcome the various non-economic barriers that make trade with Norway more difficult for them. He believes that he contributes to the improvement of the business connections between Norway and France, and he is glad he can be a part of it. Feedback from the companies Joachim helps make him trust that his experience can yet be valuable as a tool for bilateral cooperation at a local level.

Elliott Brice Lambert

Elliott is used to evolve in an international environment for the last 6 years: he has been on two short exchanges in Germany in high school, and a summer internship in Greece (Thessaloniki) during his bachelor and two internships ( 1 year in total) in Norway (Oslo) during his master. He has been living in Norway for two years and a half. He has some good knowledge in Norwegian and German and some notions in Greek. He holds a Master in Environmental Biology that he has done in France and Norway. Afterwards, he has been working in a school and on a his own project in WWF Norway for 7 months (volunteer), joined ESN Oslo as the PR manager last May and the national board as the Communication Manager during September. The main reasons he joined ESN was to improve his skills in communication, project management and coordination. He is currently trying to develop the project “Skal vi snakke?”. This project involves linguistic exchanges in Norwegian with international people and hopefully would lead to the creation of the blog where international people would share their experiences, feelings about living in Norway. To sum up, I am really into environmental studies and into exchange of knowledge and skills (as cultures and languages) / international connections.

We are cooperating with NOVA, a leading talent company, for Global Talent Week. Nova has been instrumental in the Global Talent Award process. Here are their input that you can read about connecting talents and companies in Norway.

What are the main characteristics Norwegian companies look for on young talent?

Based on our experience there are three things that stands out in what companies are looking for when looking for talent:

People who can deliver

Knowing in advance who will deliver to and beyond expectations is virtually impossible – but recruiters are mainly looking at four things when attempting to predict performance; grades, ability tests, previous results and relevant experience. Although grades is a very poor predictor of future performance (sett inn prosent), it is still a widely used method of screening applicants as it provides a very efficient way of sorting large amounts of applicants. If you have good grades this is also an indication that you are willing to put down work to achieve good results. Different companies operates with different cut-off values, but in general, it is a good advice to keep up the grades (which to most students is an obvious advice)!

The usage of ability tests is becoming more widespread – and with good reason. While many applicants may dread this form of testing, ability measured as GMA (general mental ability, often referred to as IQ) has been found to be a strong predictor of future job performance. It is also an efficient way to measure a group of candidates in an objective way, and is therefore a tool that is likely here to stay. While increasing your GMA is next to impossible – we recommend being well prepared before taking an ability test. Familiarize yourself with the test format by taking online sample-tests and make sure you are well rested and in a quiet environment when taking the final test.

Previous work related results is also a way for a company to see if someone will perform well. Interestingly, this is something we frequently see missing in CVs. While some merely state company and title, others just list a set of tasks. Try instead of quantifying what you have done and delivered; how many projects did you deliver or have many percent over budget did you deliver? By doing this, you can show that you have created value in the past – making it more likely that you will do the same in the future.

Finally, relevant experience is somewhat self-explanatory. As a student is may be hard to gain experience that is considered relevant for future positions, but try to amount this by applying for internships, part-time jobs and volunteer in student organizations. By for example holding leadership positions in student organizations and unions you can build up experience such as budget responsibilities, team work, leadership experience etc. You should also spend time on accentuating relevant experience of your CV for the specific job you are applying for!

People who fit the culture

People –culture fit is important to companies because it most cases a man is not an island. A highly talented individual may cause more harm than good to a company if she or he is not a good match with the other colleagues at a company. Team work is an important part of most companies, and thus it is important to find employees who will function well alongside the rest of the coworkers while at the same time embodying the values and goals of the company as a whole. This is a win-win situation, as it will also increase the likelihood of a talent staying with the company over time. Thus it is closely related to the next point – hiring people who will stay. It should therefore not only be a characteristic the company look for in a talent, but something the talent looks for in a company. By finding a company with a culture you value, you increase the chances of thriving in the job. We recommend that talents spend time on researching the culture of the company they’re applying for; talk to someone who works there, participate at events held by the company and read up on their values.

People who will stay.

Recruiting is a costly affair and is followed by a long period of training and on-boarding on new employees before they begin producing value for the company. As cynical this viewpoint may seem, it is vital for companies to hire people who will stay over time. Employee retention is a challenge that is becoming more and more prioritized at companies as employee mobility is higher than ever. On average, employees are now only staying 4 years at one company.

Recruitment professionals are trying to secure retention by spending time on the aforementioned person-culture fit, as well as an expectation clarification in the recruitment process. If both the company and the applicant are aligned when it comes to such things as what is expected, what are the nature of the work tasks and what are the advancement opportunities, the likelihood of a long-term employment is much greater. As a job-seeker you should also focus on clarifying this before accepting a job offer.

What, would you say, are the biggest challenges Norwegians companies face on finding talents for their business?

Needless to say, competition is the biggest challenge companies face when trying to hire top talent. The talented students and young professionals can be considered a rare commodity of which many are trying to attract.  Thus the following challenge comes as a result of this main challenge; trying to stand out and be the preferred choice for talent.

To do this, companies must be connected to the top talent. As many as 8 out of 10 are today hired directly or indirectly through network, so to sum it up; network is important! To take this one step further, we suggest that companies should spend time and resources in building relationships with talent. Creating meaningful relationships is networking 2.0. It is no longer sufficient to hand out business cards and add each other on LinkedIn, you have to spend time building relationships with the people you are trying to attract. Young talent today are increasingly more concerned with people and culture when choosing their next employer, and it should thus be a priority of all companies to spend time of getting to know these talents and letting them get to know the company and its employees.

Read on their great tips to be noticed by recruiters and headhunters!

  • What is the difference between a recruiter and a headhunter?

A headhunter is an individual hired by a corporation to locate a suitable candidate with a certain skill set. The skill sets are often harder to find or require a certain background. Headhunters are typically not involved in the recruiting process beyond the point of locating the candidate. After this point the headhunting part is over, and the recruiting process will take over. Recruiters are typically more involved in the entire recruiting process. They manage advertising and job board placement. You can happen to be both headhunter and recruiter in the same process, but not at the same time.

  • How can one be headhunted?

You can`t just decide that “today I would like to be headhunted”. If you want to be noticed by headhunters and recruiters, my first advice is to make sure you do a great job where you are, then go the extra mile for the company and your colleagues, and be visual on career forums like LinkedIn and others. Then your chances for headhunting will definitely increase!

  • What is a crucial step to do in looking for a job (in Norway)?

The most crucial step when looking for a job in any country, not only in Norway, is to map and be aware of your own motivation, values, skills and personality. When you feel secure, others will be. This should always be your starting point. Getting knowledge about the Norwegian culture and language can be crucial. It has been incredibly hard to get into the job market in Norway without knowing the language. So I always encourage our English speaking candidates to attend a Norwegian class, sooner the better. If you are stuck on a beginners level, you will still be far more qualified than a candidate without this knowledge.

  • What can a candidate do to stand out from the rest?

Many things! Just start getting creative! The biggest mistake is to follow what “everyone” does. My advice is to be proactive in your job seeking, find new ways to Rome. You have to lead your own process. Don`t expect others to make it happen for you. Follow up your applications carefully. Let the recruiters know that you are motivated and interested, and ask questions. Think thoroughly through why they should choose YOU.
