Each voice over agent or talent agency will have different processes for hiring or setting up auditions. The best way to find out what your first step will be is to contact the agency and speak with a representative.
There are many ways that a talent agency can help you find the right voice for your project, and a representative can explain the different opportunities available to help you find what you need.
Depending on timeline, the voice over agent may suggest that you listen to some of the artists he or she represents online or during a meeting, or they may suggest setting up live auditions so you can see the talent in person and interact with the artists one-on-one.

Setting up auditions through a voice over agent should not cost anything.
When you have a project that requires just the right voice, a casting agent is going to be the best resource for you. Agents know their talent very well and can help you find the perfect fit. Voice over agents will already have extensive knowledge about the artists available, especially if you are seeking an artist with an area of specialty, such as a Spanish voice talent or an artist who is particularly good at character impersonations. The majority of today's performers are represented by agents and book jobs exclusively through those agents; so starting with a voice over agent just makes the most sense.
Agents create relationships with the artists they represent and learn what strengths each artist possesses and how wide his or her range of versatility is. They know exactly which artists to recommend for which type of job. Senior casting agents have likely been in the industry for years and are not only familiar with the talent but are also extremely comfortable with the overall process of voice over jobs from conception to the final product. Their insight into the different facets and ins-and-outs of commercial voice casting can be invaluable to not only the talent they represent but also the directors and producers who reach out to them.
Agents aren't the only ones who know how valuable they are. Professional talent artists all over the country know the importance of getting and keeping representation from a great voice over agent. In fact, many voice over agents spend more time casting talent for voice-only roles than they do for talent that will actually appear on-camera.
Voice over agents can also offer the option of having their talent record and send in auditions or doing them in person.
