Q: Why was my application automatically rejected when I submitted it?
A: In order to be placed in the inventory, you must meet the essential education and experience qualifications at the time you submit your application.
If you receive a message "Application rejected at screening" immediately after submitting your application, you probably answered "No" to the screening question assessing the essential qualification of education and experience.
