I would like to personally invite you to CareerCampLA 2012 which is happening Friday, April 20, 2012 at LA Southwest College.


CareerCamp is a community organized, career-focused, unconference which calls upon local communities and people to share their knowledge, expertise and other important information on developing yourself and your career.

This will be our 3rd CareerCampLA and our 6th CareerCamp overall. You can find photos, video and audio from previous events on the CareerCampLA web site which can give you a small feeling of what the experience is like.

For more information on CareerCamp and a short explanation of unconferences in general, you can visit the CareerCampLA Wesbite at https://careercampla.wordpress.com/about-careercampla-2010/

For Recruiters and Employers:

I recently wrote a short blog post on “Why employers and recruiters should attend a CareerCamp event?” to specifically address some comments I received at the DoL event. I think there are significant advantages  for employers and recruiters to meet motivated job candidates in this casual and positive environment.

You can read this blog post at:

If CareerCamp sounds interesting and useful to you, please share this information with your organization and clients. I have attached a CareerCampLA flyer, in PDF format, to this email.

CareerCampLA 2012 is only 14 days away. CareerCampSCV (Santa Clarita Valley) is scheduled for July 14, 2012 and we will be setting a date and location for CareerCampSFV (San Fernando Valley) as soon as we can.

For information on future events, please subscribe to our mailing lists:
CareerCamp International (for information on all CareerCamps)

If you have any questions about CareerCamp, please feel free to email (douglas@careercampinternational.org) or call me at 818-804-5049.

Thank you for your time and attention! I look forward to seeing you at a future CareerCamp!
