This paper uses an approach that differs from conventional interview research to trace the individual trajectories of two computing graduates. In this approach, interviews are considered a dialogic process and analysis is a case-centred process that explores similarities and differences in participants' trajectories. This approach allows us to probe the experience and lasting value of computing education beyond graduation. In this extended analytic approach we expose participants' sense of professionalism and we connect this with the concept of accountable disciplinary knowledge (ADK). ADK has previously only been applied to students' experiences and identity formation at university. The approach taken in this work allows us to see the extension of ADK into the workplace.
