Abstract

Few studies have examined socialization at the individual level, with little work done linking socialization with career success. Trying to bridge these two fields is important for various reasons. Dynamic working environments force people to change jobs frequently, require them to integrate into new environment over and over again. This paper proposes a conceptual framework of relationship building process and its relationship with perceived career success. Newcomers have different individual characteristic that over time might evolve in different network strategies. Network characteristics of social and informational support networks might mediate the individual characteristics and relationship building strategy towards a different perception of career success.
