Want to know the Secret to Not Getting Hired?

My friend Paul Strikwerda has a great blog and this one is a keeper. Auditioning is a fact of life these days and we do not “win” them all. But trying to figure out WHY we are not getting picked for the jobs is not the best use of our time.

Wait, I take that back, you need to have at least some idea of why auditions aren’t selected – many of the reasons have nothing to do with you, your voice, your read. But then again, many of the reasons have everything to do with you, your voice, your read.

So as you start this journey of self-evaluation, please look at Paul’s list of reasons why you were not selected to voice a project.

Here are the first 8 on this long list of reasons…

  • you’re more of the same

  • you’re a one-trick pony

  • you need a lot of hand-holding

  • your audio is awful

  • your attitude is even worse

  • you’re insecure, overconfident  or unresponsive

  • your fee is too low or too high to be taken seriously

  • you’re high-maintenance
