Question--a recruiter reached out via LinkedIn for a strategy position at a creative brand studio in NY. They want to see work samples but all of the strategy work I have are under strict NDAs and I honestly think any future work I produce will likely be the same. I suggested that I could create speculative work based on mock scenarios/clients but I'm not sure that landed with them. How do I go about showing my work and thinking with these kind of restrictions?
