(3) Pursuant to 20 CFR §652.8(j), Job Service shall accept and attempt to accommodate employers' valid affirmative action requests in job orders by referring a significant number of qualified applicants from the target groups.

B. Applicant. An individual may become a Job Service applicant by applying to Job Service.

C. Job Referral.

(1) Job Service staff shall review the applicant's completed application to assess the applicant's qualifications.

(2) When appropriate, Job Service shall attempt to match the applicant's qualification with the specifications set forth in a job order or otherwise attempt to develop a job opportunity for the applicant.

(3) Job Service may refer one or more applicants to an employer in response to a job order.

(4) If an applicant fails to appear for three scheduled appointments with employers within a 12-month period, Job Service may refuse to refer the applicant for 1 year following the third missed appointment.
