In a Nutshell: When J. Kelly Hoey decided to make a career change, it took 18 months of hard work to realize her goal. That time together with subsequent career experiences inspired her to write the book “Build Your Dream Network,” in which she highlights networking practices that any professional can use to advance his or her career. 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.

Read more than simply the excerpt of “Author J. Kelly Hoey’s “Build Your Dream Network” Reveals Effective Networking Practices for Starting, Advancing, or Changing Your Career” on the blog.
