It is possible to find out what you want. I did it by using the Search button at the top of any page.

There are good examples just waiting for you when you use the search button.

You could certainly use the symbol translator utility EZACFSM1 and translate the &JOBNAME system variable into the actual jobname, and write the output to a dataset, which you can then read in from your program (ACCEPT or READ, your call).
