Jennifer Johnson is the subject of chapter 2 of Kelly Hoey’s newly-published book Build Your Dream Network. As Kelly noted, “Paying close attention to the behaviors of other people, along with having a clear focus on the primary task at hand, is one way to cut through all the networking noise. This is something executive recruiter Jennifer Johnson does very well.”

Kelly’s interview of Jenn focuses on her relocation from Texas to NYC, without an existing network or contacts outside of her new boss. Kelly explained, “Within a few years, Jennifer was on a first-name basis with everyone (and I mean everyone) in the legal marketing industry. Rolling up her sleeves to get to know other people has been central to Jennifer’s networked success.”

BYDN offers readers a modern roadmap for creating and cultivating meaningful connections to stand out from the crowd and achieve any of your goals, no matter how big or small.
