> If yes, I think I do not need to put the jobs in background, since the reason I want to background them is because I have these several jobs in a single file and I want to run them in parallel instead of one start after another finishes.

It's always difficult to answer "better" questions. Everything has pros and
cons. You choose your own requirements and what method fits your needs.

Some of my users like multiple batch scripts, some like a single.  
*shrug* I don't care either way.
