In a Nutshell: When J. Kelly Hoey decided to make a career change, it took 18 months of hard work to realize her goal.

Her guidance involves re-envisioning networks and how to leverage them, and she urges readers to broaden the scope of networking, listen carefully to feedback, and create personal value for others in a network. By following Hoey’s example and advice, anyone pursuing a career change can put themselves in a strong position to achieve success.
