Voice Actor

“Voice acting, depending on the job, can be high-paying and requires little physical effort in terms of what one might consider traditional physical labor,” according to Stephanie Ciccarelli, co-founder and chief marketing officer of the voiceover talent agency Voices.com. “Many pros cite $100,000 as something a voice talent could make annually. …Those at the top of their game in promo and movie trailers are making over $1 million a year.”

For people who dread the public eye but dream of working in the arts, work as a voice actor is ideal. The names of Dan Castellaneta and Nancy Cartwright might not ring a bell, but they’ve been fixtures in American homes for over 20 years as voice actors on “The Simpsons.” Voice actors aren’t limited to working in entertainment. If you hear a disembodied voice asking you to press “pound” on your touch-tone keypad or giving directions from a GPS, a voice actor has provided it.
