This article is one of a larger series of several new Voices updates, all related to the official launch of three new creative services: audio production, music and translation. In addition to this article, you can check out the others in the series below, each one relating to new or updated aspects of our market, including:
On Voices, it all starts with a job offer. That’s why, with the launch of our new creative services, we’ve put a lot of thought and effort into how clients post job vacancies. We have spoken to clients and talent over the past few months, and one of the things we heard time and time again was how much they appreciated the ease of use and level of detail of our form. job offer. With the introduction of these new services, we want to maintain that same balance between keeping our job posting form quick and easy to fill out, and making sure that we are collecting the right information to lead to a successful job and a successful job posting process. fluid hiring.
Our approach to the job posting
Unlike other independent markets, our job posting form is specially designed for each of the creative services we offer. We don’t have a generic job posting form that asks for the same information for every type of job you want to post. Depending on the specific creative department you are interested in, the information required to publish your job will change. This helps ensure that you and the talent are sharing the information necessary for the best possible creative results as quickly and efficiently as possible.
For each of the new vacancy forms, you will see familiar elements and new fields specific to the selected department and skill. When you fill out the form now, immediately after naming your project, you will be asked to choose from one of the four creative services we offer: voiceover, audio production, music, and translation.
Since these additions are both exciting and quite important, we want to reassure our clients and our talent communities that beyond the job offer form, the act of hiring talent, the creation of ” an employment contract, the use of SurePayMT, work a job, approve files and release payment, do not change. The experience of using Voices, when it comes to jobs, remains the same.
Let’s take a look at what makes these new job posting forms different, but still very familiar, from their voiceover counterpart.
Posting a job in audio production
In addition to the basic Project Overview and Budget sections of the job posting form, there is an updated Project Details section, with some fields specific to audio production and others shared between Music and Translation.
Project details section: includes the following fields, some of which are optional, and gives you the flexibility to specify exactly what your audio production needs are in addition to including references that might be useful for talents to have when responding to the job offer :

Post a music job
Similar to voiceover and audio production tasks, publishing a music task requires that you complete the Project Overview, Project Details, and Budget Details sections. However, the Performance Details and Usage Details sections have slight variations from the voiceover:
Performance details (Singers and Jingles Skills only): encompasses the following fields, some of which are optional, and gives you the flexibility to specify exactly what your creative needs are in addition to including references that might be useful for talents to have when responding to the job posting :

Publish a translation job
For the first time, customers can post jobs that won’t and likely won’t include audio. This is why our translation job offer form only shares the Project Details and Budget sections with other departments. However, the Project overview section for translation jobs differs considerably.
Project overview: in addition to the name of your project as well as the selection of the translation service, you will be asked to provide additional information, some mandatory, others optional, to ensure that we match and invite the right talent to your position :
- Translated from (source language) – the language in which the original, or the source, the creation or the document is written or interpreted.
- Translated to (target language) – the language you want the original, source, creative or document to be translated into.
