Job status from within a job

Job status from within a job

For many of my SQL Server Agent jobs, I have a step that is called if a
previous step fails.  This step looks in the system tables to determine the
error message from the failing step, and sends me a text message on my RIM
pager.  The problem is, my query sometimes returns the error message from a
previous run of the job.  What query can I use to reliably capture the error
text of a failing step in a variable for use in sending a message?
