If you can jump start it you have a bad connection at one of the battery posts.

As stated above check your connections, that's the first step. Next If you know how to use a multi meter. First check the volts with the car on, anything over 13 is ok just not over 15. If it's under 13 your alternator is not charging the battery. You'll next want to test the volts with the car off, should be closer to 12v. Wait an hour or two test it again it should not have dropped much if it did your battery is bad. The last test is to set the multimeter on your window and try to start the car. You want to watch the meter, see if it goes under 10 when you start, if it does your battery is shot. If you're not comfortable with a multimeter, don't do it. And these are round numbers. But this test can give you an idea of what is going on. The battery should be able to hold close to 12v. The alternator should be pushing out more than 13v. And your cranking volt shouldn't drop less than 10. If your battery and alternator checks out than something is draining your battery. A quick Google search for test car battery with multi meter will help you find videos on how to do this, it's basically the same on any car.
