Ever wonder about the jobs that are posted at Voices.com and how they break down?
Take a look at these charts and graphs from the past 12 months that reveal what clients are looking for when they post jobs at Voices.com.
As you can see, the majority of clients coming to Voices.com are seeking talent who speak a dialect of English, with 46% requesting "North American English", and 32% simply asking for "English".
"Other" means any language other than what you see listed on the pie chart. "British English" is representative of 7% of all posted jobs at Voices.com.
When clients post a job that does not have a specific dialect of English associated with their voice over, they are open to receiving auditions from any voice over professional who can speak English fluently.
This may come as good, democratic news to you! There is almost an equal amount of jobs that require male voices as there are requiring female voices.
38% of jobs are posted to women specifically, 37% are posted to male voice talent specifically, and 25% are open to both male and female voice talent.
When you take a look at this graph, you might be wondering why the largest percentage of jobs posted is unknown... some clients posting jobs are not selecting this field because they want to keep their options open with regard to age.
The people who do specify a particular age often do so out of necessity. They want someone whose voice is comfortable performing in a distinct age range to better reach their target audience.
The categories clients can choose from at Voices.com are diverse, and as displayed above, you can tell that the jobs posted run the gamut!
Here's a breakdown of the jobs:
"Other" encompasses videogames, movie trailers, music composition, jingles, and podcasting.
