Submit job from CICS and COBOL

An interviewer asked me if we can submit a job using a cobol program and using CICS and if so , what is the way of doing these two things. I think from cobol we can run a job by using the utility INTRDR but I have no idea about invoking a JCL from CICS. Can anyone please tell me?

The INTRDR (Internal Reader) is not a utility, it is a destination in the JCL.

To use this on your system, talk with the CICS  support people for your environment to learn the specifics.

It may be helpful if you post how you would open, write, and close the spool.
