As far as I know, you keep your skill points, it's just everything is reset. This is due to the fact that some job paths change weapons (Bladers use Double Blades, Gunslingers use Guns, etc.), so the game will remove some skills that don't apply towards your path, but the rest will remain. (Might need need to buy them, though)
