You’re in massage school and beginning to think about life after graduation—but where will you find a massage job? A good place to start your search is on one of the many websites that can help you get settled in your new career.
There are two categories of sites that fulfill this purpose: job sites, which match job seekers with employment openings (think clinics and spas); and therapist-locator sites, where clients research local therapists in private practice (you’ll have to register on these sites).
