LaidOffCamp events are where unemployed peopled get the chance to gather under a single roof to meet and share ideas with experts about how to go about and find new jobs during this recession.
Networking is an essential element of the back to work process and LaidOffCamps are the perfect catalyst for unemployed people to create and greatly improve their opportunities to get themselves noticed instead of having their CVs binned by HR without so much as a cursory glance during the 1st CV cut. We want all to fly through to get interviewed and then offered a new job.
LaidOffCampUK is a chance for unemployed UK citizens to discuss topics in breakaway sessions led by experts that may include: living on an extreme budget, building your personal brand, creating the perfect CV, how to deal responsibly with your debt or how to be a freelance consultant and more.
This week Robert Bruce took the first steps to bring LaidOffCamp to the UK during May 2009.
LaidOffCampUK needs corporate, SME and volunteer help and calls on companies in UK to be sponsors and to rally to the support of the UK's unemployed millions by donating funds and their expertise to the creation of this event to try and change the bleak prospects of so many unemployed people in Britain.
Go see feedback on the San Francisco inaugural event.
LaidOffCampUK has a Twitter account at http:twitter.com/laidoffcampuk and a FaceBook page here http://tinyurl.com/d6utbp and invites any unemployed or newly self-employed person and potential sponsor to make contact to discuss sponsorship and attend LaidOffcampUK and to also volunteer to help organise this groundbreaking event in UK.
LaidOffCamp UK is non-profit. All sponsorship funds go tp pay venue and other costs related to holding the event.
Thanks for letting me take up a few moments of your time. I hope the LaidOffCamp concept is accepted and engaged by people who have been impacted by the events in UK leading to either their dismissal or redundancy.
Your help to spread the word about LaidOffCampUK will be very, very appreciated.
Many thanks and kindest regards
