There are 24 Jobs in Bravely Default if you include the Freelancer. Many of them require side quests to unlock. Each Job has a variety of ways that you can play them.

By combining support skills and picking a sub job, you can come up with your own play style for almost any Job in the game.

I will guide you through unlocking each Job so that you can decide how you want to play.

This guide will cover everything about Jobs including:

  • Job Unlocks: What chapter each Job is in, and how to unlock them
  • Job Description: Basic info on each Job.
