Lightbulb Any IT managers in here? Writing COBOL pgm to show @ interview

Does anybody in here hire, or are you involved in the hiring process for programmers?

If so I have a question, but it is specific toward mainframes and COBOL. I am attending college now and will graduate in May of next year. I want to write a COBOL program to show people when I go in for an interview. What would be a good project for me to work on to show? What kinds of things should I have besides the code? I'm not sure what management looks for when they are talking to potential new hires, but I have heard in a few different places that it would be a good idea to write a program show it to the interviewer. Even thought this isn't a guarantee every bonus point I can get will help. Thanks for your time.

Jason Z.
