GeneralCode Samples for a Job Interview Pin

I've received an email from a prospective employer inviting me to set up a job interview. A note at the end requests a link to my GitHub code repo or sample code/projects prior to the interview.

I don't have a personal GitHub repo or code samples because, unlike probably most here, I no longer do programming as a hobby on my own time. Everything I've done in the last 15 years that the interviewer would be interested in is proprietary code I've written for my current employer, and I don't feel comfortable sharing that outside the company, even though the two industries are not related by any stretch of the imagination, so they wouldn't be able to benefit.

What would you do in this situation? Rewrite some of your code to remove any hints of its purpose or value to your employer? Write new code?
If you think 'goto' is evil, try writing an Assembly program without JMP.
