The job search continues !

“You have 13.378 new job opportunities” 


No matter how personalized my online job seeker profiles, it seems I will either have to take on a 5 year Master program to become a well-site geologist or….fly to work!

So is there really not any company out there who would be happy to employ a highly motivated individual?

Or maybe the strategies I use for finding the right position, just don’t work in Stavanger!

Ok, it’s just been a few days of online research and connecting and many fresh expats seem to be in the same position as me. But we can’t all be looking for the same thing, right? In the next days, I will try the walk-in method and see if the effort pays off.

Who else of you out there is keen to work and doesn’t seem to be heard?

I’d love to share experiences!

This is my introduction for any potential employer:

“My name is Heidi Legein. I am a Belgian citizen with extensive experience and a strong career path in Sales/Marketing &PR/Business development, mainly within the travel and hospitality industry. I have moved to Stavanger a week ago as my husband has signed a permanent contract here in the oil industry. Prior to the move, we were residing in Cairo, Egypt where I would start as Marketing/PR director for a leading luxury hotel group there. My responsibilities would have included all Marketing strategies, creating events/exhibitions and public relations towards media, corporate clients and VIP customers and pushing sales targets. Due to the political situation in Egypt and my husband’s job offer, we have decided to make our home in Norway for the long run.

I am seeking a position in hospitality,sales & marketing or HR, where I can use my talents and be an added value.

I am a highly dedicated individual with a passion for new marketing techniques, who constantly strives to market products according to an innovative approach and increase sales through creativity, coaching and effectiveness.

With a strong affinity to HR, I have always striven to push the right candidates forward.

I enjoy coaching employees and assisting them in developing the right career path.

As my husband is a Petrophysicist, I have come to understand the oil & gas recruitment and  it’s variety of skilled workers quite well.

I have great knowledge of the travel market demand and offer worldwide. Years of experience with CI and delivering the highest quality service levels, as well as leading and training jr sales managers and CS employees and improving overall operations efficiency, tourist destination management for a world-leading Tour Operator (including all hotel products) and responsibility for several European markets are just a part of the experiences I can offer you.

I have experience in business consultancy and commercial support in several fields.

Branding and product placement are a hobby to me.

I speak fluent English, as well as French, German and Dutch with notions of several other languages.

I will start learning Norwegian immediately.”

And I’m not even being picky! Any job offer, any field…

So where are you, employers of Stavanger? I’m ready!

And to you job-seekers: best of luck!
