I have yet to have a job that lets me use samples in my portfolio. I got around
it by writing similar documents about "unclassified" items or simply writing up
procedures for daily items.<<

I have never had a problem using proprietary samples in my portfolio. I may show one chapter of one proprietary project under development, but I'll never leave it behind. I wouldn't use the most sensitive chapter as a sample anyway. I make sure the sample stays in the same room with me. Leave-behinds are always non-proprietary.

Some companies make employees sign proprietary information agreements about revealing classified (not Top Secret) information, but if anyone is worried about not having samples to show, they're obviously looking for another job. If I'm interviewing for a great job/contract, and samples are required (especially if they're related to the position I'm interviewing for), I'll have some.

And I sleep just fine at nite, too.
