* I drew some graphs in Paint
Today I applied for three jobs and then realised that out of the three, I actually only want one of them. The one that I'm least likely to get. (It's as a recruitment consultant, for interest's sake - the other two are sales jobs which are pretty much identical to the one I just left, except I'd be selling different stuff. One is for health insurance. The other is for freighting. What was I thinking?)
As a result of this, I have developed a (completely unsubstantiated) theory that the more enjoyable a job is, the less likely I am to be offered it.
I have drawn a graph to illustrate my findings (fig. A) - let y be my potential enjoyment of the job, and let x be the likelihood of this job being offered to me.
Here is a bonus graph of how I rate various jobs in terms of fun and money.
Tomorrow I am going to do something productive.
