Pupils at a West Tamar school were given the opportunity to explore potential future pathways.
Exeter High School held a career expo for its grade 7 to 10 pupils on Thursday.
Grade 10 pupils Naomi Edwards, Neve Ringk, Laura Termine, and Zac Jelfs said it was a great opportunity.
"We've got a heap of businesses, mainly local, that have come to talk to us about opportunities that we'll have in the future for careers, or university of college, depending on what pathways we're going to go down," Neve said.
"If you're not sure about what you might want to go into, you can just go around and have a chat to everyone and they're happy to explain what they do, how it works, and the steps taken to get there," Laura said.
Grade 10 AST Sharon Parish said the expo was linked to the schools My Education program.
"There are four key inquiry areas they've got to look at - who I am, what opportunities are out there, who do I want to become, and the pathway I can end up going down to be able to achieve that," she said. "Hopefully the career expo will be able to answer a lot of those things."
Ms Parish said a big part of the expo was building community partnerships.
"It's a strong belief at Exeter that education is everybody's business," she said.
"It's fantastic with the career expo that we can have these partnerships to make sure that these guys are the best that they can possibly be and that they're lifelong learners."
Stalls included Northern businesses, UTAS, TAFE, and the Australian Defence Force.
