Excerpt from Pathways to Membership: Socialization to Work

The view taken in this chapter is that when one moves into the work world for the first time there is likely to be at least some surprise or what Hughes (1958) calls reality shock in store for the individual. When persons undergo such a transition, regardless of the information they already possess about the to-be assumed work, their a priori understanding of that role will un doubtedly change in either a subtle or dramatic fashion. As William James observed long ago, knowledge about and knowledge of a phenomena imply quite different levels of meaning. No matter how well prepared an individual mav be educationally or by virtue of family experience, becoming a full - time member of a work organization will upset one's everyday order of things. Matters concerning friendship, time, purpose, demeanor, competence.
