Professionals were grilled by eight and nine-year-olds as Gunton Primary Academy in Lowestoft hosted a Careers Fair.
Local representatives from property services, local government, retail and hospitality took questions from 45 enthusiastic Year 4 children on Wednesday, July 5.
The goal was to make youngsters more aware of how the skills they learn in school connect with the world of work.
Children delved into the professionals' career choices and were able to make direct links with subject specific skills.
Danny Steel, Lowestoft Vision chairman and managing director of Steel and Co, said: 'I was very impressed with the quality of the questions and the positive attitudes.'
