1. Create an array of records, each a field array containing the job IDs and
the respective contact IDs.

2. Submit the array to the database in a way that the database understands.

Did you want specific Ruby code to accomplish this? If so, just say so.

record_array = []

job_id = 1

contact_id.each |id| do
  record_array << [ job_id, id ]
end

In order to take the next step, we'll need more information, like, what
database?
