You are searching about voice over jobs because you have started your journey in voice over industry a few days/weeks/months back or you are just starting out to grab your first project.
To be frank, getting voice over work is like getting projects for any other artistic work. You need to market yourself well, but you cannot compromise with talent and what the client demands.
To begin with, forget about getting dubbing work, as it requires some prior experience and is much more difficult than a normal voice over script.
Voice over jobs are available in abundant, but you need to knock the right door to get the work for yourself. I will focus on online and offline mediums for you to get voice over jobs.

All I did was – create a professional gig there and start providing my services. It has loads and loads of targeted traffic.
- Upload on Youtube: You should always create portfolio videos of your work and upload it on Youtube. Do proper SEO of your Youtube video and it will start ranking easily.
Getting Voice Over Jobs Offline
There are enormous opportunities to get work offline. Only one quality of yours work here before your voice over talent. It’s your networking quality. You need to start searching for voice recording studios/sound recording studios near your place and you have to visit them personally and provide them your voice over samples.
Just have a talk with them and if they ask you to record a sample at their studio, then do not hesitate to do so. Inform them that you are available for work at good rates.
Give them calls every alternate week so that they think of you whenever they receive a project. I am telling you to do this as there are many new voice over artists and they would not remember everyone. So you need to leave an impression 😉
Note: If you are proficient in more than 2 languages then the voice over jobs are even more for you J
