If you create the sql job as a stored procedure you can then use print statements in the proc to provide updates to the web app

SqlConnection DbConn = new SqlConnection(sqlConnection);
            SqlCommand ExecJob = new SqlCommand();
            ExecJob.Connection = DbConn;
            ExecJob.CommandType = CommandType.StoredProcedure;
            ExecJob.CommandText = "msdb.dbo.sp_start_job";
            ExecJob.Parameters.AddWithValue("@job_name", "LoadData");

            using (DbConn)
            {
                DbConn.Open();
                using (ExecJob)
                {
                    ExecJob.ExecuteNonQuery();
