Abstract

This paper is an exploration of some of the processes involved in the creation and maintenance of a shared occupational identity among individuals in organizations. Though focusing specifically on police officers and high school teachers, through this I hope to raise some broader issues concerning the traditional view of "occupational socialization" and "occupations in organizations" in the sociological literature.
