Hi Thomasm,

While reRendering it is always prefer to reRender the parent block, so use the below code:
<apex:page standardController="Jobs__c" recordSetVar="jbs" sidebar="false">
	<apex:form>
		<apex:pageBlock title="Current Jobs">
            <apex:SelectList value="{!filterID}" size="1">
				<apex:actionSupport event="onchange" reRender="pbSection"/>
				<apex:selectOptions value="{!listviewoptions}"/>
			</apex:SelectList>

			<apex:pageBlockSection id="pbSection">
				<apex:pageBlockTable Value="{!jbs}" var="a" >
					<apex:column >
						<apex:outputlink value="/{!a.id}">{!a.name} </apex:outputlink>
					</apex:column>
					<apex:column headerValue="Active" >
						<apex:inputField value="{!a.Active__c}"/>
					</apex:column>
					<apex:Column value="{!a.Job_Number__c}"/>
				</apex:pageBlockTable>
			</apex:pageBlockSection>
		</apex:pageBlock>
    </apex:form>
</apex:page>
Let me know, if you need any other information.

Thanks,
Neetu
