About six weeks ago, I talked to Brandon Smith about the new face of America’s workforce (read more here). A Randstad study noted that companies will continue to use part-time and contract-based employees along with full-time workers.

The uncertainty of working as a “contractor” or a “consultant” can wear on people. Where’s the next paycheck going to come from? What happens once this project is over?

A blog reader recently wrote Brandon to ask how she can deal with her insecurities and the anger and resentment she often feels by the end of a project. His answer – and the root of her behavior – on this week’s Working on GPB Radio.
