Derivative work as a private demo of one's skills?

Hi!
 
I'm thinking about taking an article out of a magazine, translating it into another language, and presenting to prospective employer as a sample of my skills (in translation).
 
Is this considered fair use, given that I'm going to credit the source, not publish it in any way, and indeed the prospective employer(s) will be the only people to ever see my translation (I also will not contact the original author, nor the copyright holder for authorization)?
 
Or would it be in violation?
 
Taking a public domain work should be safe, but I'm really looking for something contemporary and freshly published.
 
Thanks
