Might check to ensure the car's transmission is in "Park" (if automatic), or in a neutral setting (if manual). For example, if an automatic and the gear selector is in "D", the car will not start. Moving it to "P" will allow the starter connection to be made. If you've verified all that, and it still doesn't start, maybe something more intense that would require a mechanic to diagnose.

Bad ignition switch, starter relay, starter, really dead battery with dead cell or cells, blown fuses in a box, bad wires from battery to starter (do voltage drop). Other things but start with this.
