What is an Unconference?
CareerCampSCV is a hybrid unconference. While a few speaker sessions will be pre-scheduled, all other speakers and breakout sessions are decided by you. If you would like to speak, you will be able to write your topic on a note and place it on any open slot on the schedule wall. There will be a few suggested breakout discussion topics listed on the schedule wall, but you should feel free to suggest additional topics. Attendees will be voting on which breakout sessions interest them most and then these top topics will be placed on the schedule wall.
Please take the time to indicate your preference on these breakout sessions. This is your chance to make CareerCampSCV your conference.
There are few rules surrounding most unconferences. In order to make this the best conference possible, please:
• Be kind to one another. Be positive. Engage with your fellow attendees
Often the best part of any conference are the accidental conversations that happen between sessions and over lunch. Don’t be afraid to talk with others. Ask them what interests them most about CareerCampLA. Ask them what they are doing to “Build the Career They Deserve.”
• No hard sell
If you are speaking, please feel free to mention your web site address during your talk, but CareerCampSCV is about sharing useful information, not making a sales pitch. If people are interested in your service, they will seek you or your web site out.
• Use the Law of 2 Feet
If you aren’t finding value in a particular speaker or session, use your “2 feet” to find another session that is useful to you. Find another speaker. Attend a different breakout session. Start your own ad hoc, impromptu discussion on a topic that interests you or just have a great conversation with fellow attendees in the “lobby.” In many ways, you directly control the quality of CareerCampSCV. Exercise that control.
• Help out where you can
Help others schedule their sessions. Help others choose their favorite breakouts. Keep the space clean by picking up after yourself and others and using the trash and recycle containers. Help us tear down at the end of the day. Whatever helps to make everyone’s day more enjoyable.
We will learn, share and have some fun along the way.
We look forward to seeing you all at CareerCampSCV!
