  1. You should apply for job positions that cannot get filled with local candidates if you want to work in a foreign country. Strong language is the other important requirement. Additionally, even PhD in Psychology will most likely be no help for you.
    Psychologists often face unemployment even in their native countries, not to mention foreign ones.

  2. Nah, you cannot! You need a study visa, but receiving it = working is forbidden for you.

  3. English is not really needed in Portugal or Norway, so your only strong point can be the necessary working skills. You should be fluent in Portuguese of Norwegian. Unfortunately, your degree would not help you to get employed.

  4. The problematic thing about Portugal is that it is a member of the EU. So, in case if you want to work there, you have to prove that you are a better candidate compared to not only Portuguese applicants but also those from the other EU countries.

  5. No, your qualities will not help you to get a Portuguese or Norwegian work visa.
    Apart from that, you study Portuguese, but you also need to know Norwegian to work in Norway, right? You should have a high level of language speaking and be eligible for a work visa if you want to get a job and live in one of these countries.

  6. You know, it is quite hard to get a job in a foreign country even on a temporary basis. In spite of the existing global tendencies, many countries strive to limit the number of foreign workers to provide their legal residents and citizens with employment. Numerous restrictions are placed on the candidatures and numbers of the temporary foreign workers.
    Not only that, but you also can face problems with visa. It will not be issued to you just because you are a suitable candidate for the job. The process commonly looks like this: an employer that is willing to hire you applies to the local immigration institutions and requests a visa for you.
