why the "technical interview?"
i have been practicing massage therapy for almost ten years and i have NEVER understood why i am EVER asked to give a massage on an interview. i cannot see ANY reason why a prospective employer cannot call my references to determine whether or not i have adequate technique and experience. the "technical interview" seems like a scam to get free massage.
most interviewers haven't even been to massage school... especially spa owners. this is, of course, beside the point. what IS the point is that receiving a massage is a purely SUBJECTIVE experience as to whether or not one likes the practitioner. a prospective employer can easily call references to determine whether or not a therapist was a good student at the school s/he attended or whether or not s/he had happy/repeat clients.
can i get a witness??? i mean REALLY?
