Career Guidance

Create a game plan that results in work! The world of voice over is as vast and multifaceted as it is exciting. Sometimes it can be difficult choosing which path to pursue, and on occasion we can lose our way.

Our Career Guidance sessions are designed so that we can have a comprehensive understanding of your past experience, your goals, your strengths, and occasionally your weaknesses.

We use this information along with our understanding of the business to help you decide exactly what it is you are striving to achieve in voice over and to put together a personalized plan of action so that you can succeed.

We will work with you to formulate a career plan and help you to decide which types of voice over demos you should record, what type of training you may need, and what it will take to stay on track, focused, and profitable.
