JUDITH CUSHMAN’S BLOG
Where Communications Vice Presidents, leaders of departments and Senior Directors aspiring to those roles can read candid, unvarnished career advice and ask questions in strict confidence
For many years I have wanted to have a voice in the marketplace expressing my analysis and insights about career (and life) decisions. This blog is about truth and what matters most to successful professionals. If my approach resonates with your values, we can work successfully together. You may contact me as you job hunt or when you are hiring a key executive for your team.
This Blog helps to answer the most frequently asked questions — or the most challenging ones where there is no perfect answer. Most importantly, it is about answering your questions.
Please reply to this post or email me: firstname.lastname@example.org.
