Review for CSIX Connect, Saratoga, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

My new job at one of California’s top academic institutions is a direct result of my involvement with CSIX CONNECT.

The first priority of any job seeker when faced with the isolation of unemployment is networking. What I found tremendously helpful were the weekly member meetings, which provided structured agendas for networking as well as guest speakers, and the weekly hikes that offered opportunities for engaging conversations in an informal and welcoming environment.

It was on one of those hikes that I expressed an interest in changing my career direction. Someone in the group notified me of a job posting and I was encouraged to pursue this position that was outside the scope of my prior work experience. It was this inspiration and reassurance that gave me the confidence and motivation to proceed, and ultimately I succeeded in getting the job.

Supportive, effective, and efficient, CSIX CONNECT is one of the finest organizations serving job seekers in the Bay Area. I can’t recommend it or Hamid Saadat, its President and Founder, highly enough.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

secure funding to provide the leadership team with administrative assistance. Hamid works so hard and I know help in this area would be a welcome relief to him and likely the rest of the staff.
