Generally, all the required steps must be different. Steps cannot be duplicated nor can one step be used to satisfy two requirements, except in the case of copies of web pages generated in conjunction with the newspaper advertisements which can serve as documentation of the use of a web site other than the employers. For example, the employer cannot count two advertisements in a local and/or ethnic newspaper, or two postings on a web site, as two steps. Similarly, the employer cannot use a professional journal in lieu of a second Sunday newspaper advertisement and then count it again as an additional ‘trade or professional organizations’ recruitment step, or count the job order again as an additional ‘web site other than the employer's’ step.
Yes, but only if the placement is not being used to satisfy the job order requirement. Where the State Workforce Agency (SWA) job order placement procedure consists of placement of the job order on AJB, then that job order placement cannot be counted as one of the additional recruiting steps.
