Since the beginning of global coronavirus pandemic, companies have been asking employees to work from home while others are getting furloughed or laid off as the novel coronavirus outbreak continues to spread around the globe. For those searching for employment opportunities, this has been a cause for concern, with large group gatherings, daily activities, and even dining in restaurants being put on hold or banned for the foreseeable future, the chances to network and discover the opportunities we all once knew have entirely disappeared.

On today’s episode of the Powderkeg Podcast, we’ll be sharing a recent interview and LIVE Q&A where we learned and gained invaluable advice from networking expert and author of the “Build Your Dream Network,” Kelly Hoey. Who has been lauded by Forbes as a Woman who is Changing the World of VC and Entrepreneurship, by Fast Company as one of the 25 Smartest Women On Twitter”) and by Inc. as 1 of the 10 Most Well-Connected People in New York City’s Startup Scene. 

She is a frequent speaker at leadership conferences, Hoey helps businesses and professionals leverage their formal and informal social networks.

Kelly has a whole new approach to the old topic of networking. And her fresh process for upping your social game does not require circulating in stale rooms or forcing awkward conversations. Instead, this conversation shows how small changes in your daily routine, simple generosity and your goal-focused efforts are all it can take to set you apart and lead to your next big opportunity.
