For recently graduated massage therapists, the task of finding your first job can be intimidating. How is a new massage therapist, fresh out of massage school, supposed to compete with those who have more experience and knowledge? New massage therapists entering the job market often want to know:
- How can I set myself apart from the competition?
- What qualities are employers looking for?
- How can I demonstrate during an interview that I am the best person for the job?

They say the best way to learn a foreign language is to completely submerse yourself in it. Going to massage school can certainly satisfy that experience, but when you’re trying to absorb information from lectures and textbooks, it can sometimes be overwhelming to wade through words that are 4 to 5 syllables or longer. Craniosacral… sacrotuberous… neuromuscular… adrenocorticotropic… huh!? On top of that, you’re expected to learn directional terms such as “superior…proximal…lateral…superficial,” and you’re probably thinking to yourself, “if I wanted to learn a foreign language at break-neck speed, I would have become a barista at the coffee shop down the street!”
