Sample Resumes

Example Resumes for Massage Therapy

I dreaded writing my first massage resume. It is easy to stare at a blank page for hours. But sometimes finding the best way to sell yourself is easier when you see how somebody else does it. That's why we have added example resumes for massage therapy. And now you can check out the great massage resume tips submitted by our readers.

Resume Versions

Depending on your career objective, you may have different versions of your resume. Remember to tailor your resume each time for each job.

For example, you would want to send a different resume to an exclusive resort spa than what you might use for a health club job or a corporate job.


Adding Bulk to your Resume

example resumes for massage therapyIf you are just starting out in your massage career you likely don't have a lot of experience. You need to be a bit creative to avoid having the shortest resume of all time. Nobody is going to be impressed that all you have done is attended massage school and worked at Starbucks. You need to gather massage related experience.

Step 3 Index

So How do you get it? Sometimes all you need to do to fill out your resume a bit is to do some volunteer work. A great way to do this is to give free massage work at local sporting events like 10K runs, marathons, swim meets, etc. And if the event is charity related it looks even better on your resume. So contact the event organizers in advance and get their permission. They can then publicize your services properly before the event. And at the end of the day you have added an inch to your resume. This is also a great way to build exposure for your private practice.

So here it is....
