Job readiness is one of the most important components of resettlement as it helps clients prepare for and integrate into the American workforce. This course empowers clients to find and succeed in jobs in the United States. It also offers tools to help them understand their documents and their rights as American workers, career path options, and personal finances. As a requirement of employment programs, there are key topics which the Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR), an Office of the Administration for Children and Families, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, expects job readiness courses to include. Higher, a technical assistance program of the Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service (LIRS), presents a complete Job Readiness Curriculum for the field of refugee employment. Higher worked closely with the Office for Refugee Resettlement, the Department of Labor, the nine Resettlement Agencies, and local affiliates across the country to develop this curriculum.
