In higher education courses that are aimed at developing professionals for specific fields, developing a professional digital identity is an important employability concern for course designers, teachers and students. A professional digital identity involves the persona that the student expresses and communicates via social media including the way that they interact on professional social networks. One element of developing an professional digital identity is through creating and sharing web-based content. The research project reported in this paper investigates the ways that students and recent graduates perceive their professional digital identities through creating and sharing web-based content for their assignments. To investigate these identities, we gathered interview data from a small group of students and recent graduates of undergraduate and postgraduate education degrees.
