How can you encourage others in your organisation and networks to sign up?

ITF asks "can you spare one hour a year to share your career story with young people?" – You can ask others to do the same!

Share your experience or knowledge of ITF with your colleagues and peers to increase the reach of the campaign and help inspire and empower more young Australian’s in their career journey and transition from school. It's easy to share with your broader network, share this Linked In the article by Schools Industry Partnership CEO Ian Palmer.
