A creative meetup for laid-off professionals

Everyone I know is either unemployed or miserable at their water-cooler job. Yes, it’s rough out there but it also fairs well for new opportunity. If you’re looking for a new adventure, you might find comfort at LaidOffCamp. It’s an ad-hoc meetup of unemployed and nontraditionally employed people (including freelancers, entrepreneurs and startups) who want to network, share ideas, and find inspiration for the next phase of their careers. Discussion topics include living on an extreme budget, building your personal brand, how to be a freelance consultant and more. Similar in nature to BarCamp, they’re hosting the non-formal meetups in cities around the globe. [via Springwise]
