Job Description

We are looking to hire voice talent for "Sarah," a White woman in her early twenties.

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 – SARAH:
Busy morning?

AUDIO SCRIPT – SARAH:
Oh, Adam was just showing me a handout his manager gave him all about AOL’s goals and values.

AUDIO SCRIPT – SARAH:
Looks like you’ve got a lot on your plate right now. We’ll just meet you in the lunchroom.

AUDIO SCRIPT – SARAH:
Hey! Adam and I were just talking about metrics—maybe you can settle an argument. Do you think AOL uses metrics to measure AOL’s progress as a whole, or just at the employee level?

AUDIO SCRIPT – SARAH:
Wow, that’s pretty cool. It’s almost like you could say there is a metrics hierarchy. First come AOL’s metrics, then your department’s, and then your own.

AUDIO SCRIPT – SARAH:
I totally agree. Adam, just because you’re not in publishing doesn’t mean you can’t influence the measurements. I mean, you can probably make a big dent in office expenses just by reusing those fancy paper clips shaped like monkeys.

AUDIO SCRIPT – SARAH:
Now that’s progress.

AUDIO SCRIPT – SARAH:
It sounds like that because it is like that. We do all have to work together.

AUDIO SCRIPT – SARAH:
That sounds about right, but not totally right.

AUDIO SCRIPT – SARAH:
I mean, they can’t have gone to all this trouble gathering metrics just to find out who’s doing their job and who isn’t. Please tell me it goes deeper than that.

AUDIO SCRIPT – SARAH:
Performance—that’s what I was getting at. That way, we can identify what is and isn’t working at every level. And it’s a positive for everyone—we’re all working toward the same thing, and our successes are all being measured and added into AOL’s metrics as a whole. That’s pretty exciting.

AUDIO SCRIPT – SARAH:
Well, this has been a really helpful lunch! Nourishment for my stomach and my brain! I’ve got to run—I should probably go talk with my manager about metrics!

AUDIO SCRIPT – SARAH:
Hey! Let me grab your ear for a minute. Mitch here is asking me about our customers with Platform-A. Care to save me?

AUDIO SCRIPT – SARAH:
Sorry, Mitch. What was it you’re asking?

AUDIO SCRIPT – SARAH:
I’m just going to say “pass” here…

AUDIO SCRIPT – SARAH:
That sounds about right to me! Now that we have all of these advertising capabilities, resources, tools and what have you, it only makes sense that we’re catering to advertisers.

AUDIO SCRIPT – SARAH:
You’ve got it. Our reach is pretty unbeatable and our solutions are, like you mentioned, that broad!

AUDIO SCRIPT – SARAH:
I think I know where this is headed.

AUDIO SCRIPT – SARAH:
Absolutely. I think our approach is the freshest one that still meets our customers’ needs on every level—we make online advertising easier and more profitable for the customer.

AUDIO SCRIPT – SARAH:
I see what you’re saying. The customer experience, after all, is what we’re known for. People like us for that.

AUDIO SCRIPT – SARAH:
I think you’ve got it. If we want to be the first choice for all our customers, it means balancing interests wisely.

AUDIO SCRIPT – SARAH:
So you’re saying that everything from our process to our technology is open now? But I feel like users value the experience we already give them. How would changing things be a benefit? Maybe our reporter can break it down for me.
