30 Nov 2016
US massage and skincare education provider Steiner Education Group and Hand and Stone Franchise Corp., a spa franchise company with 300 US locations, have announced an agreement to provide the opportunity for Steiner students to interview for a job with Hand & Stone franchises in their areas.

Steiner operates massage therapy and skincare schools at 30 locations in 13 states.

“We are thrilled to be working with the Steiner Education Group to develop this industry leading program that will help place their highly qualified graduates into Hand & Stone Massage and Facial Spas,” said Todd Leff, president and CEO of Hand & Stone.

“As a fast-growing national concept, we have openings throughout the country that Steiner Education Group can help us fill. Just as important, since their graduates receive the best hands-on and technical education available, we are certain they meet our high standards for massage therapists and skin care professionals who want to start a rewarding career with Hand & Stone.”

A Hand & Stone representative with hiring authority for spas in the area around a participating Steiner campus will come to the campus to interview students for available massage therapy and skin care positions. Hand & Stone will also provide a limited amount of free continuing education courses and other benefits to Steiner graduates at participating campuses.

The agreement is anticipated to be effective for students who start school in 2017.

“The demand for massage therapists and skin care professionals is very high, and Steiner Education Group is focused on ensuring that our graduates have access to all of the best career opportunities.” said Jarrett Erasmous, vice president of Steiner Education Group.

“With this agreement, we expect to not only help Hand & Stone fill the many available positions created by their growth, but we will also increase the opportunities for our graduates to become part of this very exciting spa company. We are looking forward to growing this relationship to provide additional benefits to Hand & Stone and to SEG students and graduates.”
