    • Summary

      Since the 2008 passage of the Post-9/11 GI Bill, U.S. military veterans and their families have had unprecedented access to education benefits. Despite this, a 2015 Syracuse University study found that many veterans experience problems while pursuing their education, and the unemployment rate for post-9/11 veterans is historically higher than that of non-veterans. This session will focus on ways that college and university career services can better serve our military service member, veteran, and family populations to help combat these numbers.

      Following this program, you will be able to:

      • Recognize that military-affiliated students are a diverse group with specific career development barriers and high unemployment rates;
      • Establish that although military-affiliated students have access to a variety of resources, gaps still remain that can be filled by university career services; and
      • Identify innovative and scalable strategies for assisting military-affiliated students, including experiential education, mentorship, and creating brick-and-mortar and/or virtual communities where these students can engage with their peers.

      Kristin Schrader

      Kristin Schrader, M.A., Assistant Director, InternPLUS, University of Maryland - University College

      Kristin Schrader is the assistant director of InternPLUS and military career programs at the University of Maryland University College (UMUC), where she advises UMUC’s nontraditional students on how to acquire experience to prepare them for a competitive job search. She also collaborates with employers on developing nontraditional, project-based internship opportunities. Additionally, Schrader serves as the UMUC Career Services Office liaison to the university’s military-affiliated student population of more than 50,000 students.

      A proud military spouse, Schrader personally understands the challenges of the job search having relocated four times—including two international moves—over the past six years due to the military. Prior to coming to UMUC, Schrader was the lead trainer in Europe for the U.S. Department of Labor Employment Workshop, conducting three-day workshops to teach transitioning U.S. service members about the civilian job search. She has facilitated workshops in six different countries. Schrader also served as a research assistant for the University of Maryland’s sociology department, assisting with a project on transitioning service members’ attitudes toward the civilian job market.  

      Schrader earned her bachelor’s and master’s degrees from The Ohio State University and has worked in career services at four universities (Ohio State, Denison University, The Citadel, and UMUC). Her career began in the private sector, working in human resources at a large manufacturing company, so Schrader’s perspective includes serving as a counselor, recruiter, and a frequent job seeker. She enjoys spending time with her husband and very active three-year-old, running, skiing, and seeing the world.
