I have an mysql table with jobs. This table contains an entry 'insertionDate' which contains the date that a job was insertion.
Now I want to know the amount of jobs that were
- inserted today
- inserted this week
- inserted this month.

How can I do this with only 1 query?

Now I use 3 queries for this. The query for the jobs from last week is:
SELECT
  COUNT( * )
FROM
 jobs
WHERE
 DATEDIFF( NOW(), insertionDate ) < 7

please check out this:
SELECT count(*) inserted_this_month
 , SUM(case when insertionDate >= DATE_SUB(CURDATE(), INTERVAL 7 DAY) then 1 else 0 end) inserted_last_7_days
 , SUM(case when insertionDate >= CURDATE then 1 else 0 end) inserted_today
FROM jobs
WHERE insertionDate >= DATE_SUB(CURDATE(), INTERVAL 1 MONTH)
