Build Your Network and a Dream Career

Build Your Network and a Dream Career

by J. Kelly Hoey


Kelly Hoey has been named one of the 25 smartest women on Twitter, and one of the ten most well-connected people in New York City's startup scene. Hoey made a name for herself in the business community as a networking expert, investor, and startup advisory board member.

Hoey was originally a lawyer but managed to engineer an epic career transformation by piggybacking on her networks. The instructor now focuses on helping people who want to build networks and develop their careers, through her books, events, and courses just like this one.

According to Hoey, the key to networking is amplifying and redirecting activities we already do on a daily basis, towards a more intentional career development goal. The unconventional approach described here emphasizes relationship building over transactions, and shows us how we can use this transformative strategy to get ahead in our career.
