Why didn't I qualify?
Maybe you do qualify, but does your application clearly show you have the necessary experience and/or training as stated on the job announcement? Some of the most common reasons for rejection are:
  • The application does not show the minimum amount of experience required
  • The application does not show the minimum amount of education required
  • The application is incomplete (something has been left out)
  • Your application was received after the deadline for filing
