How Improv Comedy Shaped My Aptitude to Be a Recruiter

If you grew up in the 90’s chances are you remember the show “Whose Line is it Anyway?” which featured performers that create scenes, characters and even songs on the spot with various improvisation games. Throughout junior high and high school I was an avid fan of the show, and I found every episode to be hilarious. It was only fitting that once I entered high school the first extracurricular, I joined was the improv club. By my sophomore year, I was president of the club and had increased membership considerably in a short amount of time. We made many of fond memories and shared countless laughs but aside from all of the fun and games; we unintentionally gained valuable communication skills that would eventually serve us well in our future careers. Some of my club members went on to become musical theater actors, salespeople, or business owners. I became a recruiter.
