Private, public and faith-based sectors will join together with one common goal during an upcoming symposium: to get people back to work.

The one-day event “Getting Californians Back to Work: A Symposium for Workforce Professionals” takes place from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Wednesday, April 17, at Bayside Church, 8191 Sierra College Blvd. in Granite Bay. The cost is $15 before April 11, and $25 after to cover breakfast and lunch.

The event is co-sponsored by the U.S. Department of Labor, the Center for Faith-based & Neighborhood Partnerships, FRANNET and Bayside Church. The goal is to assist people in transition, and educate them on how the nature of work is changing, according to a press release.

There are fewer full-time jobs with benefits. More than ever, people need to manage their own careers and find alternative ways to generate income. How can people adjust? What resources are available to them?

For the first time in California, this symposium will fuse together business, government, churches, career coaches, staffing and HR professionals to help job seekers, according to organizers. The keynote speaker is Carleen MacKay, author and speaker on “The Key to Prosperity – New Work for a New Time.”
