linux Ctrl^Z paused process where is it?

I am not a full time linux user and I keep forgetting this most of the time. If you press Ctrl-Z in the terminal window – the process is stopped/paused and pushed to the background. how do you bring it back – use fg

$ fg

fg by itself will bring the most recently paused job to the foreground and runs it.
bg runs the job but doesn’t bring it to the foreground.
jobs lists all the running jobs.
search for “linux fg bg jobs” on the web
