When rejecting job candidates it can be helpful to show the reason that they were unsuccessful in their application, especially if their record is retained for the possibility of being offered a new role, to aid in this you can configure your own Rejection Reasons which will simply state the reason for which a candidate was not picked for a role. To add Rejection Reasons navigate to:
Administration -> HR -> Data Management -> Recruitment -> Rejection Reasons.
