Freelance Acting VS Corporate Employment
y Elaine Clark

Voiceover and On-Camera skills have gone beyond freelance applications. Most companies have video and audio on their websites. These postings need to be updated regularly.  Applications include internal intranet video and audio sites, YouTube postings, webinars, news feeds, tutorial programs, etc. While freelancers are still booking many of these jobs, the immediacy of the posts and the desire to establish an insider voice or face of the company has opened up new full and part time communication positions.


Voice One provides the skills to become solid presenters, sound interesting in e-learning modules, and engage the listener on website tutorials. So, if you've got the training and are currently employed with a company that needs these services (or are looking for full or part-time corporate employment), you should let them know your background.  You might be surprised; they may need your services. It's another avenue to get a regular salary doing the thing you love most - acting! And if you prefer the freelance approach, let your corporate friends know you have these skills and can provide voiceover and/or on-camera services. 


You have a choice: wait for work to come your way or go out and find your own. It's time to take control of your career.   


Here's to you booking work!
