In this episode of the iRelaunch podcast, Kelly Hoey talks about the Build Your Dream Network approach to networking and ways to bring your networks back to life after a career break.
Kelly shares her career transition stories. How she transitioned from corporate attorney to a management role, ultimately landing in a newly created position as president of a global business network with women after a casual conversation unexpectedly transformed into a unique job opportunity.
From her own personal experiences, along with those she’s interviewed for her book, Kelly explains why networking should be a researched, focused and specific process, and how to thoughtfully ease back into networks that have gone dormant.
