Going Up - Episode 3

Going Up - Episode 3

As seen in Episode 2, The Spotty Truth has used improv to "elevate" their professional lives by applying the fundamentals to their current positions. We know that if improv helps them in their day to day, it had to help them LAND the job by conducting a flawless interview. 

To shake it up a bit, we wanted to see what happens when we asked The Spotty Truth to improvise based on the suggestion "awkward interview moments." This team was so much fun that our founder, Erin Diehl, even jumped in for a bit!

Now get cozy in your cubicle and be prepared to laugh, because this is a Going Up! episode you won't want to miss!
