CRUSOE College students are facing their future as they take part in a careers expo and work experience program.
About 200 year 10 pupils are spending the last two weeks of term working with Bendigo businesses and attending workshops run by local professionals.
Careers co-ordinator Chantelle McMillin said students were also involved in various fun and fitness activities.
"The program aims to show students how much is out there in terms of careers and possibilities for their transition in life," she said.
Industries represented at the expo workshops included emergency services, media, law, education, physiotherapy, graphic design and science.
