Massage Therapist Resume

A massage therapist resume is a summary of your core strengths, abilities and past experiences. You need to consider the following points when building a resume for a massage therapist position:


● Limit your resume to one page in length unless you have more than ten years of experience in hand.

● It should be an error-free document. If your resume is poorly-written, unorganized, and contains spelling errors, it will negatively affect your candidacy.

● Proofread your resume many times before sending. Have a friend, or family member proofread it.

● There are three different formats of resumes you could choose, i.e., chronological, functional/skills and combination; we strongly recommend a skill-based resume to get the fruitful results.
