Work, Occupations and Professionalization

Work, Occupations and Professionalization




Work is increasingly dependant upon credentialism, special skills, experience, and education. Regulatory bodies set standards of professionalism, employment, and practice that are officially recognized in laws, regulations, and policies. This book contributes to the overall question of the professionalization of work through detailed theoretical analysis and qualitative research techniques. Readers will explore how race, gender, and class intersect with one's profession and how inequality is situated in the work space. This book is ideal for courses on the sociology of work, occupations, professionalization, and industry.
