Voice Over jobs

Rita Segura
Voice Over: English

Hello-I'm a voice over talent in the U.S. I've been on Mandy for 18 months now. I have not gotten any jobs and was wondering if anyone knows, on average, how many voice over talent are potentially applying for any one job. When I get an email from Mandy of a job match, I apply to most of them, although some are not even close to what I have on my profile, such a Spanish speaking male, (I'm a white female). What are the odds of having my audition heard by anybody? It's hard to believe, given my success on other platforms, that I haven't gotten one job. I had one false start with someone who wanted IVR but then they said they were not doing it. Another just said thank you for applying but we've chosen someone else. That's it. That is all the communication I have received. I was wondering what other's experience has been and maybe some tips for being heard. Am I in competition with thousands of other VO talent when I submit an audition or is it under 100, for example? I've asked Mandy but they did not have an answer for me. They said they don't know. I'm ready to cancel my subscription with them but thought I'd reach out and see what others have experienced before I do. Thanks so much.

Hi Jono, thanks for responding to my post. Are you having success on the Mandy platform? How long have you been on the platform and have you gotten any jobs from it? Thanks, Rita

I have noticed in my short time being here, there are not many postings of VO gigs, hopefully that changes.

Hi Ty, thank for responding. I'll just have decide if the $8/month is worth it. So far, no.

Hi Rita: I feel your pain. I've sought work on Mandy for a year or so, usually submitting 1 or 2 auditions per week for jobs that seem appropriate. No bookings yet, even for those that seemed just right for me. I agree that it's frustrating to have no idea how many other people have applied for a job -- partly to get a sense of whether it's worth adding my app to the mix. One advantage of Mandy is that membership is cheap compared to the big P2Ps, and I know people who have spent $500+ on them with no bookings. Competition on the big P2Ps can be higher and a member's ROI not necessarily better. And clearly from your website, you are an experienced pro whose work justifies booking. Wasting a lot of time fruitlessly auditioning is frustrating and I wish I had a good solution, but I don't.

I at least have had a couple of responses, and both were good, no job yet, but a potential one coming.
