My Top 10 Predictions for 2012

[tweetmeme source=”GaryFranklin”]

There have been a lot of predictions about the future of recruitment, about 2012 and about the economy so why not add to them I thought

Here are my top ten predictions for this year.

1. You will still have vacancies to fill
2. You will still get cold calls from people
3. Many of those People and others will continue to be stupid beyond words
4. Road Fund License (Car Tax) will need renewing at the end of …..(pick a month)
5. Christmas Day will be on 25th December 2012
6. It will rain in July………………somewhere
7. There will be more crap blogs than good blogs to read
8. Your Klout Score will remain completely irrelevant and useless to anyone but you
9. Social Media on the mobile will rule time and space
10. All of these will come true

There you go. That all you need to know for 2012.

Have a good one

  1. Ah, good to know there are still some certainties in life!
    Happy New Year Gary – here’s hoping it’s a good one.

  2. Truth begets truth. Well predicted, look forward to the certainties. Daniel

  3. You really do have a crystal ball Gary.

  4. Good points well made…I’d just about had enough of predictions, thanks for putting them in perspective.

    Klout! Bah humbug is all I say to that. I’m far too busy writing absolutely loads and loads and loads of interesting, useful, market savvy, intelligent and otherwise unthought of content to disseminate via the various social media channels to ensure that I and my company stay at the top of Google… What else could be more important than retaining that ultimate, elusive and no longer merely ‘SEO’ manipulated position.

    Recruitment is yesterdays news, social media is the way forward. Forget vacancies, adverts, candidates, clients and general things such as good presentation skills, sales skills, manners, personality, market knowledge, perseverance and tenacity.

    Just write a load of old b*llocks at least twice a day and there you go.
