Businessmen and women paid a visit to a school to give sixthformers some tips on interview technique.
Bourne Academy held a two-day event called The World of Work to encourage Year 13 pupils to prepare for the start of their careers.
Employers from several businesses including PJH Law, Buckles Solicitors and the Co-operative were among those giving advice.
Business Studies teacher Sally Sutcliffe said: “The students did exceptionally well when taking part in the two day event, and conducted themselves in a professional manner.
“A special thanks should go to our Year 13 Business group, who also had to plan and organise the proceedings.”
The majority of the group hope to study business at university.
