What to put on a lighting reel?

As the title suggests. I recently got in contact with a recruiter trying to find out what big companies look for when it comes to a lighting reel, but the reply I got was not exactly what a starter who has no background can get access to.

I was told I needed to light shots, so basically animation sequence I suppose? I am not sure how I can get access to an animated sequence without lights and texture already that I can use for reels. And does that mean still images are not okay at all?

I was originally thinking it would be nice to include an outdoor scene, an indoor scene and a match to background (compositing) and show all the passes and compositing nodes used for each piece, and maybe make different lighting conditions for all to show a shift of time during the day or special lighting situation. Is this not a good idea for a reel?

I would really appreciate some suggestions!
