Job Description

We are looking to hire voice talent for "Greg," a Black man in his 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 – GREG:
Have you seen this? It’s all about AOL’s corporate goals and values. I learned this stuff on my first day here, but I must be getting old because I have no idea what they mean by ‘products and programming leadership.’

AUDIO SCRIPT – GREG:
I think you’re right. I seem to remember a lot of products and programs were successfully retooled last year, and it feels like AOL is constantly looking for ways to improve so we can maintain our place as a market leader.

AUDIO SCRIPT – GREG:
I have to say, it’s pretty cool to work for a market leader in products and programming. But it must be tough to expand our reach and ensure user engagement, given the fierce online competition these days.

AUDIO SCRIPT – GREG:
That’s pretty impressive. It’s great to know AOL is thinking globally.

AUDIO SCRIPT – GREG:
That sounds great—but is it enough?

AUDIO SCRIPT – GREG:
It’s all well and good that we’re aware that we need to be cutting-edge when it comes to our product and programming offerings, but aren’t we being a little naïve to think that that’s enough? Isn’t there more we can do?

AUDIO SCRIPT – GREG:
That’s what I was getting at—global expansion. We’re going to be market leaders domestically as well as internationally.

AUDIO SCRIPT – GREG:
So if we’re talking global expansion here, I can see how that relates to global reach, but what did you mean by ‘product monetization’?

AUDIO SCRIPT – GREG:
Ah, yes - it’s all coming back to me. Actually, I just read a Wiki post about the different measures AOL uses to track monetization, like revenue-per-thousand page views, services sold to its customers, and sell-through rates.

AUDIO SCRIPT – GREG:
Speaking of money, check out that last goal: cost management. I hope they’re talking about buying fewer notepads, because I for one don’t want to have to sleep on a cot at the airport during my next business trip.

AUDIO SCRIPT – GREG:
That sounds pretty logical. If every level is encouraged to spend responsibly, that could go a long way toward stabilizing cost, if not reducing it. [Elevator dings] Well, I better catch that elevator—but it’s been great talking with you! Thanks for all the great information!

AUDIO SCRIPT – GREG:
Hmm. I’m not so sure that’s entirely it.

AUDIO SCRIPT – GREG:
I mean, that’s kind of depressing—that makes it seem like AOL only wants to reduce operating costs, and isn’t interested in other opportunities for cost management.

AUDIO SCRIPT – GREG:
That sounds more well-rounded. If we’re serious about cost management, we have to look at it from every angle. [Elevator dings] Well, I better catch that elevator—but it’s been great talking with you! Thanks for all the great information!

AUDIO SCRIPT – GREG:
Those owned-and-operated sites Adam is talking about are really important to the new business model.

AUDIO SCRIPT – GREG:
Exactly. The more engaging and relevant the content, the more traffic we’ll see on those pages. I know that’s especially important to Platform-A, right Jan?

AUDIO SCRIPT – GREG:
You’re absolutely right. Working together is the only way to make the most relevant content that will engage users and draw advertisers. It’s also necessary to utilize all that Platforms does.

AUDIO SCRIPT – GREG:
But isn’t everyone a lot more comfortable with Big Bowl? It seems safer to stick with what we have. I want to ask you, do you think DynaPub is really going to help our project so much that we should move away from what we know?
