"My pleasure William.
I have no idea what you are looking for, but maybe contacting a local college or university in your
area would be helpful. You could talk with the film students about your services. Even if you don't get
paid, it might be…"
"If you are trying to sell your music, another avenue would be to contact art and creative directors at advertising agencies. Perhaps they would be interested in using your music for a commercial, or have you write something for them. You can find…"
"Also some universities have services for visually impaired students, i.e., audio recordings of textbooks. These are usually done on an "as need" basis and rely on volunteer narrators. Excellent practice and, as Sarah pointed out, not…"

Thanks for being in touch and the good words. I've been very fortunate to land some good gigs. If I'm lucky I'll get a new position sometime soon.
I was told early on, by a veteran broadcaster, the trick is hard work and learn from the failures that will be a part of any success. Be willing to try anything, that's legal, and don't take no for an answer. I wish you all the best in your efforts. It's a great business with many fantastic people willing to help you succeed.
William, just work hard, don't rest, always be doing something that can enhance your career even if it's watching movies!!
All the practical stuff is obvious but the important stuff is people: burn no bridges and treat everyone you meet as important because our fortunes change so quickly in this business and a nobody today may be in a position to help your career tomorrow.
William, if you haven't already you should send demos out and speak to your local production companies, recording studios, publishing companies and advertising agencies. It is also a good idea to join your local chamber of commerce if you are serious about being a voice talent (this should be treated as your own small business). Hope this helps.
