JP, or Job Points, are the points awarded to players who complete jobs in GTA Online. These are especially important in playlists, where the player with the most JP at the end is crowned the winner.

Job Points are also used for tiebreakers in the job selection menu. When two jobs receive the same amount of votes, the outcome is decided by the side with the most combined Job Points.
