The purpose of the study is to explore the organizational identification development during the organizational socialization process. The main aim is to investigate the relationships among organizational socialization tactics, information-seeking behaviour, perception of fit with the organization and organizational identification. In particular, the mediating role of the perception of fit between organizational socialization tactics and organizational identification and between implicit information-seeking behaviour and organizational identification were tested. This is a two-waves longitudinal study conducted on 76 participants. Results show a direct positive relationship between implicit information-seeking behaviour and organizational identification, whereas no relationship was found considering the explicit information-seeking behaviour. Moreover, results support the mediating role of perception of fit in the relationship between organizational socialization tactics and organizational identification. Practical implications and suggestions for further research were discussed.
