How do I get a value from a variable for a job in a process flow, so that I can use it in the Prompt

I'm trying to read the Report of a job, get a value, store it in a Variable, and then pass it to the next job in the workflow. But I'd like to make this as generic and re-usable as possible.

Currently, I have modified the Post Process of the first job to "Process" the Report, and PUT_VAR that value into a variable. I'm unable to find a way to GET_VAR within the PRE_CONDITIONS tab of the second job within the workflow. I need it in the Pre_Conditions because that is the only way I can pass that value to the PromptSet of the second job. I know I can use PSET to pass the & variable up to the process flow, and then read that same value in the next job, but that seems hackish.

Is the GET_VAR in Pre-Conditions a feature that doesn't exist? I can see the method for Setting a Variable, but no way to GET from a variable. Any suggestions?
