Jobs are 'missions' you complete in the game to earn XP and cash. Each district contains a number of jobs. when you first enter a district, only one job will be available, with others opening up once earlier jobs have been completed.
To undertake most jobs, you need specific items and lieutenants. Some also require that you own certain properties. When you first attempt to complete a job, if you do not have something that's required, you will be prompted to buy what you're missing.
When you do a job you gain cash, experience points, and the job gets closer to completion. Once a job reaches 100% complete, you receive 1 star for that job and 1 stat point. Each job can be raised up to a total of 5 stars (once you have completed the final job in each area). Completing jobs may unlock other jobs. Completing certain jobs makes the corresponding bosses available, or unlocks a seat in your inner circle. Completing all the jobs in a district to 5 stars unlocks the secret jobs in that area, if they have been released.
The cash obtained from a job is boosted by the powers of some lieutenants:
The experience gained from jobs is boosted by Penelope.
There are a number of Achievements that can be earned by completing regular jobs.
There's a job comparison table on the wiki at Jobs Table.
Each district also contains one Challenge Job, which can reward you with new lieutenants. Every time you complete the challenge job the 'challenge meter' goes up. The higher the challenge meter the better your chances of getting a reward are. When you collect from the challenge job the challenge meter is reset to 0. The challenge jobs can be completed any number of times.
Secret jobs consist of eight jobs that can only be completed in sequence. Each must be completed to 5 stars to unlock the next. Completing the final secret job to 5 stars grants the reward of a free crate.
