I've been so fortunate to join this talented and diverse group of people, who's goal is to not lose hope amidst the chaotic world of the "unemployed". I felt so intimidated at first, but everyone is so welcoming and at the end of the day we all know that when one door closes, another door opens. The group inspired me to keep on going because I am not alone.

It's not easy keeping up morale when you're unemployed. CSIX supports all job seekers through in-person networking opportunities and education, the things that we need to keep our confidence up and help us stand out to employers. CSIX provides a safe and comfortable place to build and polish your networking skills in a safe and supportive environment.

CSIX is an incredible organization helping Silicon Valley workers in transition. They provide a great opportunity for networking, connecting with employers, and honing their job hunting skills. It's run by contributions, and volunteers, and the are all SAINTS! CSIX helped me keep sane and even optimistic. I am so thankful that Hamid and the entire staff were there for me.

CSix fills an important role for many of us looking to get back into the workplace, after a period of not working. There are many valuable tips I've gotten over time, and the meetings are always interesting.

Cheers!

This is an exceptional resource for those entering or re-entering the job market. It provides a nurturing atmosphere to practice networking, and it provides a forum to give and get connections. Each weekly meeting features a guest speaker who is an expert on at least one aspect of job hunting.
