Rankings can be somewhat subjective so it is best not to read too much into them, unless you are noticing a pattern. If you find you are being ranked poorly all the time, there may be a few different reasons that this is occurring. Always make sure you are using professional quality equipment for auditions. In addition to good equipment, your recording environment should be treated to absorb echo. This makes a huge difference in quality. Audio set-up should never be taken lightly and should always be done with the guidance of an audio professional.

A few things to keep in mind about rankings:
- A voice seeker does not have to use the ranking system. If you do not get ranked on an audition, there is no reason to be concerned. Some voice seekers simply opt not to use it, but many do.
- No one can see your rankings except for you! Rankings are private.
- The audition ranking score calculations DOES take into account that some voice seekers may be rough when ranking auditions or proposals.
Currently, there are 5 possible rankings you can receive on an audition:
This is the best ranking you can receive. It means you have made the top of the list in terms of likeliness of being hired. While this is fantastic news, it does not guarantee that you will be booked. You will know you got the job when and if the voice seeker directly reaches out to you (either via our interface or using the contact information that you provided in your proposal). You will also notice that you and a few other talents can be tied for first place (or any place status). Sometimes, the voice seeker likes more than one talent and ranks a few of them with 4 stars, and later decides which one will ultimately be hired.
This is also a very good ranking to get. It means that you might be considered for the gig. At times, voice seekers will use this instead of 4 stars, while they make up their mind on who they want to hire. 4 and 3 stars are both great rankings to receive.
A 2 star ranking is neither great nor is it bad. It is an average rank.
This ranking means just what it says. It means you are not likely to be hired for that particular project. While this ranking may not be great to get, it doesn't necessarily mean you did horrible. It could just mean that you are not a good fit for what the client has in mind. Getting a few of these rankings is nothing to be too concerned about. However, if you get this ranking very frequently, you may want to reassess your technique and/or audio quality. Have your vocal or audio coach assess what you could be doing wrong.

Some clients prefer not to rank any or some of the auditions that they have received. This is absolutely normal, so do not think that there is something wrong if your audition is opened but not ranked.
