It is an endeavour to understand how newcomers tend to learn the content of a new role or an organization's culture (norms, values, know-how, rituals etc.) in order to be integrated within its parameters and context. Data was collected through comprehensive semi-direct interviews. The sorts of data included participants' experiences and practices of their socialization processes as well as their perceptions of their identities. The main results include the role of past experience in the genesis of the socialization process, the value of communities of practice and the evolution of the newcomer's identity.
