public static void ScheduleBatchedJobs();

Description

By default jobs are only put on a local queue when using Job Schedule functions, this actually makes them available to the worker threads to execute them.

The job system intentionally delays job execution until you call ScheduleBatchedJobs manually because the cost of actually waking up worker threads can be expensive. Thus a good default is to delay the actual kick until a few jobs have been scheduled. Generally if you are scheduling a bunch of jobs in a loop, wait with kicking the jobs until the end of the loop. If you do significant amounts of work on the main thread between scheduling jobs, then it can make sense to ScheduleBatchedJobs between each job.
