is it ok to show companies graphic design work i have done for other companies?
I am a graphic designer. I am interviewing with a few other companies for graphic design jobs. They have asked to see my portfolio. Should I only show them things I have done for unpaid work or freelance jobs, or is it ok to show them things I have done while working as Marketing Director for another company?
