Competence Translation; to describe, document and verify skills gained through work experience in a particular industry or sector, to be fully acknowledged outside this industry or sector, may help mobility in a society where mobility is the new constant, and job seekers with short or unfulfilled formal education risk permanent drop out from the labor market. A small scale pilot project recently carried out in oil crisis struck Stavanger has shown that competence translation is possible, and indicates positive effect on career transition for former oil employees with various skills and competences.
