Professional Socialization in Organizational Context: Hypotheses and Comparative Cases.
Slawski, Carl
A guide for future research was developed for professional socialization processes, focusing on graduate education, aspects of career development, disciplinary and departmental ideology, and relationships between socializer and socialee (or faculty or graduate student). The analysis centers around the hypothesis that social distance between a specialist and his associates, both on and off the job, increases (1) with the hardness of his typical research design, and (2) with a decrease in the social relevance of his formal day-to-day work as a specialist. Based in part on questionnaire data from 148 respondents dealing with means and goals of education, but primarily on interpretations of focused interviews with eight faculty members and 46 graduate students in four departments of a large public university. The use of some of these key elements and interrelated hypotheses is illustrated with case material. (Author/LBH)
