Announcing LaidOffCamp and FreelanceCamp Reno

Reno Collective is very excited to announce that both LaidOffCamp and Freelance Camp are coming to the Reno-Tahoe area. LaidOffCamp and Freelance Camp are ad-hoc gatherings of unemployed and self-employed people (including entrepreneurs and startups) who want to share ideas and learn from each other. We believe that this will be a great event to help individuals find or create jobs for themselves amidst our struggling economy. An exact date and venue for the event are still being determined.

Northern Nevada Unemployment in the News

"Jacobs was among the estimated 3,000 who had turned out by noon - some with young children in tow - in search of one of the 700 jobs expected to be available when the $1.2 billion Legends at Sparks Marina shopping and entertainment center begins to open this summer.

Sponsors said they expected two to three times that number by the time the event was to end at 7 p.m. in a state where unemployment climbed to 10.4 percent in March, the highest in a quarter century."
