Voice123 voiceover job selection
Voice123 has such a great selection of voice over talent that it is very important for each to know what their exact product they are selling will offer. After all, each voice over talent is unique to their own abilities, so there will be jobs posted on Voice123, that one must pass up if they are not right for the job.
Analyzing what to audition for is very much a needed skill for working online, and yet, it remains one of the least talked about topics. Staff at Voice123 that used to use Voice123 as a voice over talent before working here, admit at that time, that they were not very good at 'project selection'. This why the parameters used in SmartCast matching are very helpful for a talent in stating what they 'specifically do better than anyone'.

So...would Steven personally audition for this one, if still using Voice123?
Does he want to audition for it?
Is it a good idea?
He does not have a middle age sound, or a raspy voice. He actually runs the risk of making himself look less talented by displaying that he is unaware of his ability and inabilities, a sure sign of inexperience. Given that people use the web to save time, he may have just helped those qualified, and this voice seeker, by not auditioning. Neither had the negative experience of someone being in the wrong place at the wrong time, and wasting someone's time.
Why does he want to audition?
The voice seeker is very professional in his/her writing. They use industry terminology, and the script looks like it was professionally written. Also, the voice seeker listens to the auditions, as evident on his/her profile.
One final tip:
You can look at the search feature and use the same parameters you see in a project you like, to see the possible matches to that project. You will find that not everyone is perfect for everything because their parameters match. In doing so, you can get a better idea of the competition you will face, or not. Of course, SmartCast takes into account more than just matching, but the info is still helpful. As an example, Voice123 looked in the search feature for the best matches to the project example used above.
You can see the results here. Note: the display of the talent DOES NOT indicate who was actually invited, nor those who auditioned.
We hope this helps, and wish you the very best!
