About This Event

The pandemic has irreparably changed the landscape of the workplace. Millions of people learned what it means to work remotely, turning our living rooms into home offices and global meeting spaces. In addition, organizations have had to rethink how they do business, including both removing and revising positions to make room for the future of work. Now, more than ever, it's imperative for everyone, particularly seasoned professionals or those looking to make a career pivot, to lean into, deepen and expand their existing skillsets so they can market themselves successfully in the new age of work.

About Our Partners

The Sacramento Works Job Center System provides resources and services to employers and job seekers in Sacramento County. Planning, policy, and oversight for the system is the responsibility of Sacramento Works, Inc., the Workforce Development Board, a 27-member volunteer board of directors.

Services, resources, workforce development sector strategies, training programs, and services to employers are provided by the staff of Workforce Development Department of the Sacramento Employment and Training Agency, the Employment Development Department and over 40 community workforce development partners.

We equip job seekers to increase their economic mobility, help businesses grow, rebuild, and thrive equitably, and prepare children and young adults for the world of work.
