More than 24 Canberra businesses with multiple jobs on offer have already registered for CIT's ApprenticeLink 2017 event next Tuesday 7, February at CIT Fyshwick.

Over 50 jobseekers have also registered as choosing work-based training to support their vocational studies.

CIT ApprenticeLink 2017 is a one-stop-shop event to connect employers and prospective apprentices/trainees in 10-minute one-on-one discussions to learn about the process for employing or becoming an apprentice or trainee in the ACT.

Apprenticeships for plumbers, hairdressers and barbers, chefs, painters, auto mechanics, builders are up for grabs on the night.
