Massage, skin care and nail professions have consistently been rated on national “Top 10” lists for finding quality full-time and part-time jobs. Since 1992, our school has been assisting Florida employers in their hiring needs by sending graduates to employers who are seeking massage therapists, skin care professionals and nail techs.

Florida Academy’s overall school completion, job placement and licensure pass rate averages are as follows:
  • Completion Rate: 91.47%

Our graduates work in resort and destination spas, day spas, medical spas, large multi-branch spas, boutique spas, hotels, cruise ships, chiropractic and medical offices, physical therapy and rehabilitation centers, and hospitals. Florida Academy also takes pride in our many graduates that own their own successful businesses in the massage and skin care industry.

Lisa LeClair-Odar, the Career Services Director, assists current students and graduates at Florida Academy through utilizing her extensive contacts throughout Southwest Florida from her years as a salon and spa owner on Captiva Island. She routinely reaches out to and meets with employers in Lee, Collier, and Charlotte Counties in Florida, as well as employers in other parts of the nation depending on the needs of our graduates.

During your studies, Lisa uses her experience as a former spa owner and as a job placement counselor to assist students with creating a professional resume and being ready for an employer interview. Hear one student’s experience at a recent job fair:

Florida Academy also arranges Job Fairs to give current students and graduates excellent exposure to a variety of employers. Job Fairs take place on campus where employers display their company information and meet with you one-on-one. Our Job Fairs are always popular with employers, often resulting in a “waiting list” of employers who want to meet Florida Academy students and graduates.

As an added benefit to our graduates, Florida Academy maintains a proprietary list of jobs that are currently in demand, with the employer’s name and contact information, in the link below. Our Career Services Department is available to all graduates for their lifetimes. Click the “Job Search” link to discover what new and exciting jobs are waiting to be filled by Florida Academy graduates.*

*Note to Employers: Florida Academy routinely holds Job Fairs on campus, which provide employers with an opportunity to talk with current students and graduates. These Job Fairs are highly popular, and often result in capacity crowds, with many employers being placed on a “waiting list” to attend the next Florida Academy Job Fair. Don’t be left behind by your competition. Contact Lisa in our Career Services Department to reserve a table at our next Job Fair.
