    SURE! There are so many of them out there the employer has the pick of the litter so to speak.   If he has ten people from Rutgers he does not want someone from Penn State. They may not mix in well!

    Of course they can. They do it all the time. You may have hundreds of applicants for a position, obviously only 1 person can fill the slot.

    Capable candidates can, and often are, rejected by companies due to the large number of applicants they often receive. I've interviewed a number of applicants for a single position and I've always chosen the individual that I thought was most qualified even though all were often qualified.

    Of course. They might have more capable candidates than they have openings. And a lot more goes into hiring decisions than whether you can do the job. THEY get to decide if you're capable or not, and whether to hire you, as long as it's not based on a legally protected class.

    Yes, companies can reject whoever they want whenever they want.

    If you were to work, for yourself then this would be a different story. A company would not be able to necessarily reject you. If you were to create your own company then it would be yours, and if you were to choose to hire people then NOBODY would have the authority to reject you.

    Yes, people can choose not to work, for you if you wanted your own employees, or not be your client, or customer, or use whatever you produce, and this is as far as goes.

    I did say necessarily reject you, so that can be perceived in different ways. If you were to work with, or for a different company then yes, you could be rejected, but if the company belonged to you then nobody would be able to reject you. Because your company would belong to you.

    I explained above different ways people can be rejected, and that's what I currently know.

    Some openings will have lots of capable candidates...meaning the company needs to pick the best one...

    Can capable candidates for food be rejected by individuals?  Of course, if there are multiple options which would all work...an individual might reject one of the food options...because they dont need them all.  Its the same thing with jobs...

    Of course.

    Although they don't do it on purpose, companies hire morons all the time.

    Yes, sometimes people are shortlisted and the names go into a hat.
