Carefully sanitize everything.  Anywhere there is any sensitive information, such as IP addresses, system names, password syntax rules, etc., replace those with strings of meaningless placeholders.  Same with graphics - anything that shows information that may be even slightly sensitive, replace the graphic with a box that shows where the imager was.  Replace all things that show or hint at the identity of the company you originally did the documents for, including logos. Any procedures that show the user how to work with something that was proprietary, replace the actual meaningful directions with placeholder strings. And of course, put in your cover letter an explanation of those changes.

Good luck.

I imagine this subject has been done to death but I have been away from the list for a while.
I am trying to put together a portfolio of writing samples for prospective employers but all my documents are "proprietary and confidential".
Does anyone have any suggestions as to approaches I could take?
Thanks very much.
