Gimme A Break: You Want The
Corporate VO ASAP? For $30?
By Rob Marley
I love getting voice-over job offers in my inbox, but there are times when you just have to say "no thank you."
For example, the one I got the other night - A Friday night, at the start of a holiday weekend:
Now yeah, I know some of you are going to say,
And you would be right.
It would take me realistically about 5 minutes to record and send this off. And because it's such a big name company, it would look good on the ol "curriculum vitae" (which might impress the one person other than my wife that may actually read my CV.)
... then you can understand why (after I finished laughing), I respectfully passed on the job opportunity.
"Working for exposure" and "working for free" are the same thing. Prove to the world that you're better than that.
