Job Description

We are looking to hire voice talent for "Jessica," an Asian 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 – JESSICA:
Hi! I guess one of the things I’m unsure of is who our competition is now.

AUDIO SCRIPT – JESSICA:
Wow—so we’re competing against the media market in general, trying to create an online space where users can get everything they need? That’s pretty awesome.

AUDIO SCRIPT – JESSICA:
But if the market changes, what does that mean for our business model?

AUDIO SCRIPT – JESSICA:
I guess we really are a dynamic company! This must be what they mean when they talk about being adaptable, flexible, and innovative.

AUDIO SCRIPT – JESSICA:
Speaking of being flexible, what if it’s better to work outside of AOL to accomplish a goal? For instance, we have a big project in the works that’s going to take a lot of people a lot of time to complete. It would cost almost 50% less to outsource the project, but I’m nervous about doing that. What’s your opinion?

AUDIO SCRIPT – JESSICA:
You’re right. This is an opportunity to exercise my role in helping to achieve AOL’s goals. I feel good about doing my part—and this way, my people can concentrate on all the projects we’re already working on.

AUDIO SCRIPT – JESSICA:
Now that I’m on the subject of helping AOL achieve its goals, I just remembered that a friend of a friend has this website that’s incredibly popular among college-age kids. I think it could be of interest to AOL. Should I tell someone about it?

AUDIO SCRIPT – JESSICA:
Now that’s awesome. It sounds like AOL really is open to change in the market. And it’s great that employees are encouraged to be aware of programming trends and innovative ideas—it’s like we all have a hand in AOL’s success. My mom used to say “You get out what you put in,” and that seems especially true now. If we as employees are open to and ready for change, AOL will be, too. Thanks so much for talking with me! I feel like I really understand our goals and values now.

AUDIO SCRIPT – JESSICA:
If collaboration is so important to this project succeeding, everyone in this room should know exactly why, say, a role like mine is so important. Why is collaboration that essential, really?

AUDIO SCRIPT – JESSICA:
This is an opportunity to act now and be on the cutting edge. This is the way to do business—by sharing, collaborating, using open-source technology…It’s necessary for Web 2.0—that’s what’s driving everything nowadays.

AUDIO SCRIPT – JESSICA:
Exactly. This is an opportunity for us to use our best resources to design programming based on our audiences needs. This helps us expand our reach and it gives our customers the best possible experience.
