Hump Day, as defined by Urban Dictionary:
The middle of the working week (Wednesday); used in the context of climbing a proverbial hill to get through a tough week.
Also according to the respected source (ahem), every other day of the week can be defined by hump day.
Tuesday is the day before hump day; Thursday is one day after hump day. Except Friday is WOOH! FREEDEOM! Day, Saturday is Mostly Hung-over Day & Sunday is of course Pre-Doom Day (Monday being Doom Day…duh).
Ok, so we get it. Hump Day is the metaphorical “hump” in the week. The icon of this glorious day is the camel, naturally. Thanks to every meme on the Internet ever. An American insurance company also decided to jump on the Hump Day bandwagon and create an ad based around this day…genius.
Anyway. I’m getting side-tracked. My entire point here is that we have found a whole new meaning for Hump Day! Having a quick squiz through some of our OneShift data, it would seem that Wednesday also happens to be the most popular day to apply for jobs! And look, it literally creates a little "hump" on Wednesdays! O - M - G.
So what’s with Wednesdays?
Personally, I would have assumed Monday (Doom Day) would be the day to apply for jobs. You’re melodramatic about the end of yet another glorious weekend, you’re angry that you have to return to the boring existence of your horrible job (I’m just assuming since you’re applying for a new one) so you get on OneShift and all system’s go! Makes sense.
But, no. Hump Day is the day.
Why is that? That’s the question I’m posing to you – the job seeker.
Are you looking for work on a Wednesday? Why?
This is no rhetorical answer silly business. I want answers people. Real words. I need meaning to all of this! You can either comment below or send us a message on Facebook! Don’t be shy. Talk to me!
On another note...since today is Hump Day, perhaps you are looking for a new job? (See what I did there)
