SANTA ANA, Calif. (December 17, 2009) Corinthian Colleges, Inc. (CCi), parent company of Everest Universities, Everest Colleges and Everest Institutes, has signed an agreement with Massage Envy to offer conditional employment to Everest Massage Therapy graduates in the chain’s clinics. Under the terms of the agreement, Everest will incorporate Massage Envy’s requirements into the curriculum, and in turn, Massage Envy will grant interviews to all Everest Massage Therapy graduates who apply to work in one of the clinics.
“With more than 600 clinics in 42 states, this is clearly an exciting opportunity for our schools and students,” said Wendy Cullen, CCi’s VP of employer development. “Not only is joining Massage Envy a great opportunity for our graduates, Massage Envy is also a committed partner. They sit on our national advisory council and are frequent participants in community events such as campus job fairs. We are proud of our most important contribution to the partnership: well-trained, professional massage therapists whose skills underscore the quality of our programs.”
“We, at Massage Envy, have always been impressed with the quality of graduates from Everest Colleges,” says CG Funk, Massage Envy’s vice president of industry relations and product development.
Funk was instrumental in working with CCi’s corporate massage education team to enhance current curriculum, which meets Massage Envy’s strict guidelines for massage therapist staff members. Massage Envy currently employs 16,000 therapists and projects hiring over 2,000 massage therapists in 2010.
According to Cullen, similar partnerships and strategic alliances will be added to CCi’s portfolio in the future. “We are well-positioned to partner on a national level. Over the past few years we have standardized our curriculum and policies and we are poised to leverage our size and scope to the advantage of our students, business partners and company.”
