no...not writing samples. People want to see them, and I have a
killer portfolio, but in real life, I can use any one writing sample
to tell any message I want, and have in the past used the same
writing samples in different situations to state opposing points when
I knew the client wanted to hear a specific point.

I want to hear, not blanket statements about their "wonderfullness",
but an indication that the person is able to internalize their
knowledge into the correct action....that they understand their trade
well enough and have the level of skill to know when to use a concept
and when NOT to use a concept, technique, or methodology, but to
switch to another. What I don't want is a one-trick pony.
