In Build Your Dream Network, J. Kelly Hoey offers a fresh approach to mastering this essential but timeworn skill in a world where everyone is frantically posting, liking, and friending, signing-up, reaching-out, yet too many people are failing to successfully make the lasting, genuine connections their careers need.
