Job Description

We are looking to hire voice talent for "Alicia," a woman in her late twenties or early thirties.

I have attached a rough draft of the script so you can provide a quote. Minor words might change prior to script signoff, but the clip count should remain the same. Your tone should be friendly and conversational, relating to the learner like you're one professional talking to another.

We are looking for very quick turnaround on this project and are hoping to have everything recorded by the end of this week or early next week.

Please see our other postings on this project as well. We have a lot of characters and would consider hiring the same actor for more than one role, provided the voices are different.

SCRIPT



AUDIO SCRIPT – ALICIA:
I’m right.

AUDIO SCRIPT – ALICIA:
Hey!

AUDIO SCRIPT – ALICIA:
So, will people from Ad.com and Tacoda come to work at AOL, or will I soon be drinking my morning coffee from an Ad.com mug?

AUDIO SCRIPT – ALICIA:
Good to hear. Nothing can part me and my beloved AOL mug now!

AUDIO SCRIPT – ALICIA:
I don’t know; I still think Vikram is right. The focus on advertising means that monetizing users takes priority over user experience.

AUDIO SCRIPT – ALICIA:
We’re sure that’s what you meant, Mr. Promotion.

AUDIO SCRIPT – ALICIA:
I’m really excited about these new enhancements we’re launching! From talking to people about them I’ve gotten the sense that a lot of people within AOL don’t understand who decides what products we’re going to develop or which enhancements we’re going to build. They think Product Managers like me go into a secret meeting and say ‘Hey, wouldn’t this be cool’ and then come out with a new product idea. Do you know how we get product ideas, or do you fall into the other camp I mentioned?

AUDIO SCRIPT – ALICIA:
You’re right; that’s one part of how we get product ideas. Creativity, innovation, collaboration, and being outwardly focused are all encouraged and valued at AOL. We encourage anyone with a good idea to send it our way. We want to feel like a start-up company, where we can decide on something that works and go with it – and quickly!

AUDIO SCRIPT – ALICIA:
Based on the conversation we just had, I think we should wait to internationalize. What do you think?

AUDIO SCRIPT – ALICIA:
I agree. We first want to make sure consumers like our bread. Right Santosh?

AUDIO SCRIPT – ALICIA:
It is. Our product team is top-notch, but outsourcing is always an option. Has anyone explained to you why we outsource?

AUDIO SCRIPT – ALICIA:
That’s right—there are many skilled people outside of AOL who make huge contributions to our products and services. It’s also about smart resource allocation–and, of course, we’re always looking for ways to minimize costs.
I think that’s it for now. Wow—I feel like we asked you more questions than you asked us! I hope this helped you get a better feel for what’s happening in the Products division. Good luck with your newsletter!
