Hand & Stone Massage and Facial Spa Creates Job Opportunities for Spouses of Military Veterans

The U.S. Department of Defense's Military Spouse Employment Partnership (MSEP) announced Hand & Stone Massage and Facial Spa as an employer partner to provide spouses of military veterans with a rewarding career in massage therapy. This recognition is extremely honorable, as organizations must be selected to participate. The Hand & Stone Recruiting Team will attend the induction ceremony in Washington, DC, that is set to be held this October 2019. Hand & Stone is the first company in the spa industry to be welcomed into this program as a partner, joining 390 job partners who have helped MSEP hire over 134,000 military spouses. We are pleased to be the first in the industry to partner with MSEP and look forward to helping MSEP close the unemployment gap for military veterans and their spouses by providing new opportunities in a career path they might not have previously perused. 

Please email Mira Rucker at mrucker@handandstone.com for more information on the Military Spouse Employment Partnership.
