How do I clear the std::queue efficiently?

I am using std::queue for implementing JobQueue class. ( Basically this class process each job in FIFO manner).
In one scenario, I want to clear the queue in one shot( delete all jobs from the queue).
I don’t see any clear method available in std::queue class.

How do I efficiently implement the clear method for JobQueue class ?

I have one simple solution of popping in a loop but I am looking for better ways.

//Clears the job queue
void JobQueue ::clearJobs()
  // I want to avoid pop in a loop
    while (!m_Queue.empty())
