dc.description.abstract This study examined the impact that personal transition issues have on the work performance and satisfaction of new professionals in housing and residence life positions. Current first-year professionals in these positions were surveyed and interviewed using materials created for this research.New professionals felt that their personal transition has a significant impact on their overall satisfaction and performance in the work environment. They also expressed a desire for institutions to be more aware of these issues and more intentional in assisting with them. The survey population identified a number of correlations between personal transition issues, work performance, and work satisfaction. They offered examples of ways their institutions helped them in their transition, as well as suggestions for additional steps that can and should be taken.
