Job Points or JP are points that are earned after completing a job in GTA Online. JP is awarded after every job, but plays its biggest role in playlists; the person with the highest amount of Job Points at the end of the playlist wins.
In a Race, the highest finisher will be awarded 15 JP; the second place finisher will be given 12 and so on.
When in a mission, players will get 15 JP by default for successfully completing the mission. If a player completed the main task during a mission (eg: collect the documents for Rooftop Rumble), they will receive 16 JP. This principle also applies to Deathmatches, where the Most Valuable Player will be awarded an additional Job Point (16 total for an MVP on the winning team).
JP will be displayed in GTA Online sessions beside the player's name. When swapping or leaving sessions, it will be reset to 0 JP.
Job Points are the only accumulated award that do not unlock items, or make them purchasable. They are simply additional rewards that do not function in any way.
