I am putting together a writing portfolio for some upcoming interviews;
however, I have been informed that many of the samples are proprietary, and
cannot be shared with other companies.

The problem is this...I'm looking at having an empty portfolio, because
virtually all of my samples would be considered proprietary.

How do I go about giving an example of what I have done, without
compromising the policies of my previous companies? Also, keep in mind that
I'm trying to show the best character in a job interview; because, if I show
proprietary samples to an interviewer, they'd likely worry about whether I
would show samples of their company to other people if I went to work for
them.

I know that character doesn't matter much in these times, but it matters to
me.

Thank you for whatever advice you can offer.
