Just went to a career fair today, and handed out a few resumes and spoke to a few corporate representatives. The most promising one came with a nice pay package, a job that sounded easy, and it would be a summer internship.
Then he explained they are looking for people with experience with COBOL. I lied and said "sure, I know COBOL" even though I dont (hey, I need work dammit!). My question is, why COBOL? You know, I looked through the course catalog at our school and they dont even teach cobol here. Why use COBOL and not C++???
And now, would someone like to point me to some refrences for COBOL syntax?
