Since you didn't supply record length info,
the following code assumes variable length
with a minimum of 8 bytes for the 1st record
and a maximum of 80 bytes for the 2nd record.

Code:

FILE INFILE
JOBNAME    1    1 A
JOBTEXT    1    1 A
*
WJOBNAME   W    8 A
WJOBTEXT   W   80 A
*
JOB INPUT(NULL)
GET INFILE
*SAVE JOBNAME
MOVE JOBNAME RECORD-LENGTH TO WJOBNAME 8 FILL ' '
GET INFILE
MOVE JOBTEXT RECORD-LENGTH TO WJOBTEXT 80 FILL ' '
DISPLAY WJOBNAME ' ' WJOBTEXT
STOP
