When you are chaining Queueables: Does the second job count against the shared limit for asynchronous Apex method executions. I am trying to reduce our number of jobs as we are nearing our asynchronous execution limit, and I'm wondering how best to consolidate my future methods. If I were to chain seven jobs together would that count as seven against the asynchronous Apex method execution limit?

Every call to a future method, every execute method (Schedulable, Batchable, and Queueable), and every Batchable start and finish method each count against the shared limit. As such, yes, seven chains would result in seven counts against the daily asynchronous limit.
