Do people who willingly hold down multiple careers at the same time struggle like the rest of us to find authenticity in their work? Brianna Caza, Sherry Moss & Heather Vough (of the University of Manitoba, Wake Forest University, and the University of Cincinnati) talk with us about what their research found. Their open-access article, “From Synchronizing to Harmonizing: The Process of Authenticating Multiple Work Identities” was published on September 26, 2017 in Administrative Science Quarterly.
