I worked as a Music Teacher and Tutor for all Academic Subjects from when I graduated High School until this past January. I worked in the classrooms for 4 years part time and I ended up being a full-time teacher for two years. I wasn't very happy with the teaching atmosphere and decided to move on, which is a really scary move. I'm actually rather terrified because this is the first period in my life where I don't really have work. So I'm trying to figure it out as I go, but I am definitely pushing to get all my tutoring students back to at least have a sustainable income until my Voice Over Business takes off!

I work full time at a hardware store called HomeDepot over night fright shift. So i work 9pm-5:30 Am est. And on the side I use to do Lets plays on youtube and currently on hold while i revamp my channel with my new equipment.
I work in the healthcare IT field! Essentially, I get paid to look into databases all day and find out what kind of patients are coming into the (New York-based) hospital I work for, if they're getting appropriate care, how well our doctors are doing, etc. When I lived in New York, I went into the office every day, but now that I live 3,000 miles away in Los Angeles, I work from home for this hospital.
I'm currently producing a crossover series. Which fits for me since I've spent 7+ years in the versus community as an admin and moderator on several different forums and put that OCD of mine to good using my calcing every single feat given to a character in question for either the "How String Is" or my upcoming vs. series which does have some professional talent. I'm also looking to study 3d animation and I'm currently getting started on taking some stage acting classes so I can do what I can to be part of the VA profession.

I'm studying Web Design but plan on changing majors to at least Computer Science while attempting to start a Voice Acting/Acting Career. My plan is to try to do freelance Web Development while pursuing Voice Acting and Music. I need a lot of work in all of those areas. I currently work at an Event Management/Crowd Security place which is pretty freelance as well. There, I check bags and make sure the crowds are safe during sporting events, concerts, and other various performances or galas. Sometimes, we'd be working directly with the talent of the night, ranging from Presidents Trump and Obama (I've worked with Secret Service before and it was amazing. Obama was a pretty chill guy) to Meghan Trainor (Or as my boss called her, Meghan Trainwreck). Even though I've only been there for a little over 6 months, I have a lot of crazy stories to tell.
I'm actually a pro VA, and I work pretty regularly in the field, but it's not enough to make a good living on especially since I live in an area with high cost of living. I'd love to do this full time but I don't think it's in the cards for a few more years at least. People who do things like commercials regularly can make a pretty good living, but I do a lot of dubbing and work-from-home stuff where the rates tend to be lower, unfortunately.
My night job is at a kitten nursery. Basically caring for orphaned kittens. <3
Wait, a kitten nursery? Is this real life? If it is, where can I sign up? Aside from voice acting that sounds like a dream come true. :')
Because every little girl dreams of being a voice actor --- right?
While I focus on taking online VO courses and getting some coaching usually during the afternoons I am a nanny. Nothing overly exciting but it pays the bills and lets me be imaginative and doofy for a couple hours~
Because every little girl dreams of being a voice actor --- right?
I'm currently a student majoring in Computer Science & Engineering (I'd also like to go for a minor in Economics). That's likely what I'll do for a living but if my voice acting YouTube Channel were successful enough and I could also build a good enough voice acting resume, I wouldn't mind doing voice acting for a living if it was financially stable enough. Although keep in mind less than 5% of professional voice actors (in the voice acting guild and all that) are even able to make more than $10,000 a year voice acting so chances are very slim of one doing it for a living. I can still dream though. And I'm fine with voice acting staying a hobby or only being a part time job; everyone needs a hobby. It's unhealthy not to have one.
DPN Talent: Thanks for the post. Its been really amazing and knowledgeable for the newbies.Though its long but worth reading.

viroth: Hey. I am 13 years old. I can only do work in private (my home). All work is free. Moderate stage acting quality is expected. I want to do my demo reel, but I don't have any ideas of what I should read for it. Any tips are useful!
