Socialization and Assimilation: Assimilation- how you become part of a group (there are 2 things that will happen)  Socialization- How the group impacts you  Individualization- How you influence the group Socialization:  Anticipatory- Happens before you are born with your name or the color of your room (stereotypical genders)  Encounter- How you make sense of the environment  Metamorphosis – Change, this happens after you’ve been at a company for a while and you decide you might need a new job o These 3 are the ‘when’ and they all lead to content which is the ‘what’  Content- Specific things that happen o What do you have to learn or what do you have to do at work  Content leads to process which is the ‘how’  Process- interviewing (key is to be honest and ask questions), information-seeking (look at table in textbook), and role-development Role-Development:  Role taking- do what you’re told, this is when managers sample and explore to see what you’re good at and to see if you’ll stick around  Role making- is when you’ve worked somewhere for a while and you confront your boss about how you should take on more responsibility (a lot of times you’ll throw someone else under the bus saying they can do the simple task your doing and that you should be doing more)  Routine- you take on this new responsibility for a while and then confront boss again when you think you deserve more Why should people invest in processes?  So they can reduce cost and turnover
