Career Change and Networking

I recently read a blog entry written by an MBA who has spent the last seven years in the financial world. He has decided that he wants a career change but has been having trouble making connections. It has just occurred to him that while he has many connections in the financial world, he has yet to establish any in his target career. How can he establish such connections when he has no experience as yet in the new career (much less a job or any training)? My advise to him would be to work with a career coach who expertise includes how to network and how to get experience and contacts in your new career. Remember, the best investment you can ever make is in yourself>
