CareerCamp International – Helping to Build the Career You Deserve

CareerCamp International in 2012

Thank you for joining us for CareerCamp in the past. We hope your career is thriving and we greatly appreciate your interest and support!

The New Year

2012 is shaping up to be a big year for CareerCamp. We now have 3 annual CareerCamps on the schedule for 2012. These include our original CareerCamp — CareerCampLA– CareerCampSCV (Santa Clarita Valley) and CareerCampSFV (San Fernando Valley)

CareerCamp organizers are working hard to spread the CareerCamp message around the world. CareerCamps are in the planning process in Virginia and we are also examining the possibility of a CareerCamp for Veterans and other niche-based events.

Organize a CareerCamp

If you would like to host a CareerCamp in your area, we are developing a handbook to assist you in planning, approaching sponsors, and facilitating the conversation on the day of your event.  Visit the CareerCamp International web site for more information.

Tentative CareerCamp Dates for 2012

CareerCampLA – April 2012
CareerCampSCV (Santa Clarita Valley) – Saturday, July 14, 2012
CareerCampSFV (San Fernando Valley) – October 2012

More information will be available as we get closer to these tentative dates. We will also announce newly organized CareerCamps on this mailing list and via the CareerCamp International blog as they are scheduled.

All the CareerCamp organizers look forward to seeing you at a CareerCamp in 2012. Please invite your friends, family and co-workers to join you in “Building the Career You Deserve.”

Please spread the word about CareerCamp by forwarding this email and directing others to the web sites linked above for more information.

WHAT ARE PEOPLE SAYING ABOUT CAREERCAMP?

“I learned more how to refine my resume, my cover letter — more about what recruiters are looking for — to help me be recognized more in the job market. This was the greatest experience. It was amazing!” – Kellie H.


“I had a great time today. It was a lot of fun and I learned a lot. Somebody mentioned that one of the goals here today was to motivate you to get out there and I think they definitely succeeded. I feel real confident and I am really happy I came today.” – Justin B.

“I think the concept of this event was phenomenal. I have attended conferences and workshops and entrepreneurial sessions and I would say, by far, this was probably one of the best I have ever attended.” – Donna J.


“Being out of work seems to be part of modern life that we are experiencing. What I heard today form several people being outside of ourselves helps us to see the positive side of living. When we help others, we are actually, in the end, helping ourselves. The energy that I have witnessed today convinces me that there is greatness in the group of people who came her to learn the tools to overcome.” – Dick C.

Audio: Social Media and Your Career Panel (Complete)

October 29, 2011 Leave a comment

Part of Social Media Week 2011

Building the career you deserve means becoming both director and promoter of it–No one cares as much about your career as you do. This means taking the lead in ‘Telling people what you do and how you do it!” Social media provides the tools needed to develop the jobs and projects that make one’s career unique and fulfilling.

This panel will give practical information about how to use social media to build the career you desire. We’ll talk not only about the “why” of social media, but also about “how” it can, and should, be used, so that you are in control of all aspects of your career.
