the training of the two groups over the better part of the last decade. It is our impression, although direct statistical evidence has not been collected, that within the first five years on the job, the two groups display markedly different attitudes towards work and towards wider social concerns. This, on the face of it, appears to be a somewhat puzzling situation, given similarity prior to their entry into the respective occupations, In this paper, we make an attempt to posit an exploratory hypothesis to account for this difference. The hypothesis is advanced on the basis of our impressions regarding the career objectives and demands the respective organisations make on the subjects of this paper. We hope that we will be able to collect sufficient empirical evidence in the future to verify this hypothesis.
