Abstract
A business becoming more common in todays labour market is the one of consultants. The idea of consultants is that they come into a company as experts in order to solve a problem and when the problem is solved and the contract has expired they move on to another costumer/client. These are usually shorter persiods of time, which means that consultants are constantly looking for new assignments.

A business becoming more common in todays labour market is the one of consultants. The idea of consultants is that they come into a company as experts in order to solve a problem and when the problem is solved and the contract has expired they move on to another costumer/client. These are usually shorter persiods of time, which means that consultants are constantly looking for new assignments. The consequences are constant changes and difficulties in making plans for the future and the economy. Accoding to the author, these things should lead to feelings of anxiety and workstrain. In order to test the hypothesis, which is consultants do have feelings of anxiety and work strain at their jobs, a business was chosen wich undergoes rapid developments and great changeability, the telecombusiness. It was considered necessary to have two research quesions 1)Do consultants have feelings of anxiety and workstrain at their jobs? And 2) How does anxiety and workstrain effect our health and how to prevent it? The last research question was considered necessary in order to enlighten the danger that anxiety and work strain impose on us and how to prevent it. However, the second research question could, unfortunately, not be aswered in a satisfactory manner. To answer research question 1) five consultants from the telecombusiness were
interviewed individually in personal conversations. The results were that all of whom considered their jobs to be stressful, but none of them feelt any anxiety or work strain. Possible causes of the outcome are discussed and the conclusion is that the hypothesis should be considered false. (Less)
