CSIX offers job seekers opportunities to meet not only with people in the same boat as you, but those who have actually jumped ship, taken the plunge, and succeeded in finding meaningful, profitable work. That's because those who have been helped by CSIX are eager to return the favor either by offering to serve as contacts at their new jobs or sharing tips on how they secured the offer. When job searching becomes a lonely, frustrating, self-confidence-shaking experience, it is comforting to know that organizations like CSIX exist to help you re-connect with the world. At CSIX, you'll find networking opportunities, special interest groups (SIGs) that focus on your business specialties, access to corporate recruiting professionals, job searching advice, camaraderie, plus much, much more. And always . . . encouragement.

CSIX Connect is an awesome organization focused on helping people find their next professional role. I was initially leary of the organization because I thought there must be a catch. However, after participating In number of its meetings, hikes, lectures and lunches, I discovered that the CSIX folks are truly focused on helping others find the next chapter in their careers via the power of networking. Hamid, the founder of the group, is genuinely dedicated to helping others and going way above and beyond to do so. I highly recommend CSIX Connect to anyone in the Siliocn Valley area who is looking for their next professional opportunity.

Chatting over a light lunch is a great way to network while job hunting. Hamid is the gracious host who gently pushes us to mix and share leads. His speakers are informative and inspirational. My resume gets positive comments now based directly on the advice given at CSIX. This is a networking group worth the time and effort.
By the way, I am employed now.

The best organization helping people in Silicon Valley learn effective job searching, networking and self-marketing skills that I know of is CSix in Saratoga, California. They provided me with a place to go to help myself and others and helped me find a great job during the deepest part of the recession in 2009.

From this forum, I launched a CSIX SIX SIGMA SIG which spanned several months and resulted in a self study program to prepare for the CSSBB exam for certification. A few completed the self study resulting in CSSBB certifications.

CSIX Connect is a non-fee networking, lead sharing, and job search organization that has been helping people connect with and win employment opportunities for several years. The format is weekly meetings that offer networking, lead sharing, networking, relevant speakers, and more networking to people seeking employment. Did I mention networking? Unemployment is lonely, confusing, and scary. CSIX helps people through it. I have used CSIX as a referral for students, participants in my resume preparation classes, and job seekers in my role as placement specialist. And I love the fee structure which includes daily emails of opportunities: Zero. This is a valuable and worthy organization.

Through csix I discovered LinkedIn which over the past 10 years has allowed me to connect with many people for professional networking. The LinkedIn and job search skills I learned at csix have allowed me to change careers to a field I love. I would recommend csix to anyone in a career transition. I have met so many great people there over the years. I continue to stay in touch online. Great organization!
