What a great environment for those in career transition! Hamid and his staff generously volunteer their time and talents to create a kind, caring, authentic culture. They do a fantastic job of booking speakers, events, and networking opportunities. What makes it even more special, is Csix attracts smart and talented members who freely share their knowledge. All you have to do is ask. Very powerful, very real support. Highly recommended. Dan C.

I have known of CSIX for many years and participated in their networking sessions whenever I am in between jobs. They are a gift to the community as volunteers organize the weekly meetings in Saratoga which are professionally run (agenda). They recruit fascinating speakers who are highly relevant to job seekers' needs. The meetings attract an eclectic group of people, so it's always fun to network, and I made friends with several people with similar interests and backgrounds.
