For more information, see Extension Methods (Visual Basic) or Extension Methods (C# Programming Guide).
The job is not actually being deleted, this method changes only its state. This operation does not provides guarantee that the job will not be performed.

It can be false if a job was expired, its method does not exist or there was an exception during the state change process.
