Youtube it.). I would say, in my own modest opinion, simply find a subject that you like and show how well you can make that subject interesting to the listener. Write something that can clearly demonstrate your speaking style and flow of words in total: In all, show them (a potential client) what kind of vocal person you are, and how your voice and style can really bring their project or product to fruition.

While I understand oDesk is a great way to offer yourself as a temp for a small job here and there, as a striving voice-over artist with no professional experience, what would win an employer or individual over to hiring you?  If you have no professional experience – thus no samples of your previous work – what can you do to make a good first impression?

For example, my girlfriend would LOVE to get into the voice acting/voice over business, even if it’s not a career, it is a dream of hers that she would do anything to achieve.  If she wanted to record her voice to create a ‘demo’ of sorts, what should she do or say?  I have the studio, but I don’t typically write that kind of material.  Most clients come in with their material in hand prior to the recording session.

Any advice that I could pass on would be great.
