Fuglset started his career in his hometown club Molde FK. From 1967 to 1972 he played for Fredrikstad FK, while he took a teacher-education in Halden. In 1971 he became top goal scorer in the First Division with 17 goals. In 93 first tier matches for Fredrikstad, he scored 52 goals.
In 1973, he was back in Molde, and played for Molde FK until he retired from football in 1982. In the final game of the 1976 league season, he scored all goals in a 6–0 drubbing of Strømsgodset IF, which saved his club from relegation, and relegated the opposition instead. Six goals in one game is still, as of 2019, a joint record for the Norwegian top division. The six goals made him top goal scorer in 1976 with 17 goals. He became top scorer in the top division for Fredrikstad in 1971 and for Molde in 1976 and is, alongside Thorstein Helstad, Odd Iversen, Frode Johnsen one of only four players who have become top scorer in the Norwegian top flight with two different clubs.
Jan Fuglset was capped 20 times for Norway, scoring six goals. He made his debut against Finland on 17 June 1970. His first two international goals came in his third national match against Iceland, in a Friendly match on 26 May 1971, a game Norway won 3-1. His last international appearance was against Yugoslavia on 30 October 1974.
