The problem is that even though I'm confident in my ability to record and do post-pro work on voice recordings, most employers want to see some sort of body of work or portfolio. Due to strict NDAs on the projects I worked on, I wasn't able to save any of the recording sessions / samples.

Just looking to see if anyone has experience with creating an audio portfolio from scratch, or if anyone has an idea of free samples I could use to somehow demonstrate my abilities.
This sounds a bit weird. I've done heaps of work that's not public but my clients have never had a problem with the inclusion of my work in a private portfolio.

Why not speak to them and ask if it's possible to show some of your work to prospective employers? Additionally, if there are any publicly distributed examples of the projects you worked on, use those.

Beyond that (if your client is a cunt) then it's up to you to create some work specifically for your folio.
