I am currently in the process of changing jobs and my strategy will be to
censor my documents, when I create my portfolio, to remove identifying
project/client/personnel names and other information not of a generic
nature. I also would modify any document containing technology that is
commercially sensitive. I will indicate on the documents that I have done
this because of confidentially concerns. This is my startegy for both
paper-based and online documents.

This way the interviewer can then keep the document and it doesn't matter
who sees it. However, it would be more cost-effective for me to have it
returned if I didn't get the job. An interviewer should be interested in my
skills, not what information is in my document. Modifying the document (and
indicating this as a confidentiality issue) as well as the document itself
should demonstrate my skills and professionalism.
