What is CareerCamp and Career Camp International?

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.

What is an unconference?

Unconferences are self-organizing conferences, similar to many professional conferences, but instead of hiring well-known, professional speakers, they call on the attendees themselves to provide the content and focus for the event. Every person who attends is highly encouraged to present on some topic deeply important to them or, barring that, to facilitate an open breakout session or round table discussion or even just to engage and converse with their fellow attendees between presentations. A few organizers band together to find a venue for the event, recruit sponsors and invite attendees, but the focus of the unconference is driven solely by the attendees.

Some might question the usefulness of presentations by their peers, but we have found that there is an enormous amount of real-world expertise available in each and every local community. CareerCamp utilizes a format that draws out that expertise and benefits everyone. CareerCamp (and other unconferences) provide a structure and an opportunity to share this expertise in ways that traditional conferences do not. Additionally, CareerCamps also attract career development professionals who can use CareerCamp as a way of introducing themselves to a new audience of potential clients.

How was CareerCamp developed?

The genesis of CareerCamp was found by attending BarCamp unconferences held around the world. CareerCamp founder, Douglas E. Welch, was a long time attendee of BarCamp, which is an event that embraces any topic, although it often leans toward technology. After seeing the success of BarCamp as a way to illuminate and educate within a community, Welch applied the unconference concept to the specific world of Career Development.

It’s Your Career, After All with Douglas E. Welch – Presented at CareerCampSCV 2014

It's Your Career, After All with Douglas E. Welch - Presented at CareerCampSCV 2014

Douglas E. Welch, writer/host of Career Opportunities and Founder of CareerCamp International speak at CareerCampSCV (Santa Clarita Valley) on July 12 2014. (Title card states 2013, but this is an typographical error)

“Your career isn’t about the externals of resumes, interviews, suits and ties, it is about the internal issues of your wants, needs and desires. You need to know what you want out of your career and then take the actions and make the decisions necessary to get there. If you don’t manage your own career, there are plenty of people who will gladly do it for you. Don’t let your career happen to you, though.”

Also mentioned in this talk, is Career Compass, FInding Your Career North. You can watch an entire talk on Career Compass, from a previous CareercampSCV, sample and buy the Career Compass book or read the original Career Opportunties column, Career Compass.

Video: What is success…and why you might have it already! from CareerCampSCV 2012

July 23, 2012 Leave a comment

Douglas E. Welch (http://douglasewelch.com/career) presents “What is success….and why you might have it already!” at CareerCampSCV (Santa Clarita Valley) 2012 (https://careercampscv.wordpress.com)

There has been a “perversion” of the meaning of success these days with only the extremely famous or rich being labelled as successful. Douglas’ definition of success is “if you can support yourself and and your family doing something you love.” Success is not black or white, it has many shades of grey and we are wise to remember it.
