How To Find The Right Massage Therapy Job Upon Graduation

Mar 5, 2008
One of the most important things of the minds of the those who are just about to complete their massage therapy training is whether they will actually be able to find a good massage therapy job after they have graduated.

As you will soon discover there are plenty of massage therapy jobs which one can undertake once training has been completed. Some therapists end up working in massage studios or at health spas or salons. Whilst others find themselves positions working in medical environments, such as at a doctor's office or in a hospital. The other types of jobs available to massage therapists will depend on where they live for example some may find themselves working in hotels or at leisure resorts.

The best way for finding out what jobs are available where you live is by talking to other massage therapists. If you can rather than just talking to those who are connected with the school that you attend speak to others who have no affiliation with your school. If you can speak to several of them that are located in different parts of the town where you live and those who actually do massage therapy in a field that you may not have considered.

As you look for a massage therapists job you may discover that you have to factor in travelling as you may find that there is a higher demand for people who have trained as massage therapists in one part of the town compared to another. Also you may find it much easier to get a position working in a health spa as a massage therapist than you would say working for a doctor or hospital.

Remember when you are talking to these massage therapists they will understand the position you are in as they were once in it themselves. Often these people are more than willing to answer some of the questions you have and may even offer you advice to get you the job that you want. Plus some may even provide you with a good lead for a job which you can apply for even if you have not got all the necessary experience as yet.

If you know the location where it is you want to work then start carrying out as much research on the place as you can. Along with speaking to the person who hires staff arrange if at all possible to speak with the massage therapists already working there. If you have not yet started training then find out from them where they did their training. Plus you need to find out exactly what it is they like and dislike about their job. Although the job may be ideally suited to their requirements, you may find that it is not the right one for you.

Any good massage therapy school will have a program in place that can help their graduates upon completing the course to find their perfect massage therapy job. Certainly, those schools have built up a good reputation are likely to find that companies will come to them in order that they can hire their students immediately once they have graduated. So it is vital that you choose one that has a good job assitance program in place before you sign up on to any massage therapy course.

By keeping the above in mind, you will find that actually getting the right massage therapy job for you will be far less fraught. Also spend time looking carefully at the various jobs that you can do and weigh up the pros and cons before applying.
