New hires’ interactions with organizations during the interim period, or time between when they accept their job offer and when they officially start work are potentially critical yet rarely studied. The authors conduct four studies to examine the factors that influence new hires’ interim socialization need, reception, and the effects of interim socialization reception on new hire adjustment. Using an experimental design, Study 1 shows that proactive personality positively relates to interim socialization need, and stronger organizational reputation attenuates this relationship. Study 2 replicates these results among employees in their interim period. Study 3 finds that proactive personality and organizational reputation independently relate to interim socialization received among newly admitted Ph.D. students. Study 4 then uses three waves of Ph.D. student data over a four-month period to demonstrate that, beyond the effects of post-entry orientation programs, interim socialization information that is actually provided relates to newcomer task performance, OCBO, OCBI, and organizational identification through role clarity, task mastery, and work group integration. The studies thus illuminate potential advantages of socializing newly hired employees after the recruitment process ends but before they actually enter their new organization.
