On the second segment of the show, we welcome Internship Coordinator Kristin Fike to discuss the upcoming Fall Internship Fair.

Joined by Knightly News Vice President Jamie Harmon, the group discusses the shift back to in-person job fairs and the impact that the pandemic has had on graduating students since 2020. Also, the group discusses best practices for going to an internship fair, even if this is your first term on campus.

During the final part of the show, Fike discusses her work with the Colleges Against Cancer club on campus, specifically outlining what the members are doing to support Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October.
