Voiceover Milwaukee - Find Your Voice

Don’t Quit Your Day Job

April 1, 2013 by david
Well not just yet. Most starting voice over actors will work a “day job,” and that’s OK. One of the busiest guys in town started doing VO on the side while he was working at one of the big box hardware stores.
We get asked by students, “How do I manage auditions and gigs when I work 9-5?” It’s not always easy, but try to schedule auditions and sessions on your lunch break to start.
You’ll want to check your email frequently for audition requests from your agent. If you don’t need to go into a studio to audition, schedule some time at night to record at home and to work on your voice over business.
When you score that big dream job, the client may be willing to work around your schedule. If not, you may have to weigh whether it’s worthwhile to take some personal time off work.
Either way, be persistent. The more work you get, the closer you are to being a full-time voice artist. So find your voice!
