No, you cannot say "my previous" because you are using "previous" as a noun when it has the function of an adjective--you must include the noun.


With the way you have it now, it would read:

"It's my previous job of previous job."


Just use it as the predicate nominative--there is no need for a clarifying prepositional phrase:

"It was my previous job."
