Any job that is scheduled in the salesforce will be registered or CronTrigger object (which is available from version 17 and later).

If you want to know the status of the job, we can write a SOQL on CronTrigger object using jobid generated by system.schedule( ) method invocation.


cronTrigger cron = [select id,cronExpression from cronTrigger where id =: jobId];
