Each class has its own "Skill levels" or job levels. The higher the skill level for that particular job, the better equipment you can equip, as well as accessibility to learning more powerful skills.
The maximum job level for any class is 8. Also note that the maximum TOTAL job levels is 12. That means if you have 7 levels, you can at most gain 5 more job levels.
Although you have to choose one of the 4 classes at the beginning of the game, you can feel free to, during the course of the game, gain levels in other classes so that you can acquire a wide variety of skills (for example a magic fighter or magician with good defense etc). Because of this, certain skills in the game can only be acquired if you have a certain job level of TWO classes. For example, a mainstream fighter with magician levels will have access to elemental magic sword skills. This also applies to certain equipments as well. For example, you need to be a level 1 fighter AND level 2 scout in order to use a boomerang.
