"The material I write for almost all of my clients is proprietary. I do not
have permission, in most cases, to even discuss what I was writing about in
general terms, let alone show samples! In some (very few) cases, I have
permission to show a short sample (a select few pages) at an interview but
not to leave said sample behind (I can't let it out of my sight)."


ME:
This brings up an important point in interviewing for a new job: How
do you show your writing skill if you cannot show samples? A person
can talk about what they did and how they did it, but what happens
when the interviewer asks to see your work? It seems that a
prospective employer takes a huge risk in hiring someone without first
seeing what they are capable of producing. How do you get around that
or what is your alternative to actual client samples?
